Trying to shoot a butterfly

My digital camera is 8 years old and it is beginning to show in the shots. It is very slow to click so I have a hard time when I am shooting something that is moving. The picture is supposed to be a butterfly but it looks more like a bow tie of the restaurant's head waiter. Anyway, that's a lemon plant that the butterfly is looking at.

Nice photo. The bow tie appearance of a flying butterfly is because the shutter speed of your old camera lense while taking photo is very slow in comparison to the butterfly's wings flapping. I don't think old cameras have the option to change the shutter speed.
@Alexandoy best option is to take a video and after transferring the video on your computer. Take a screen shot of the video while playing . You may get a good photo of the fast moving object. Paste the screen shot image onto a image editor like paint and save the file.
I'd say you have fantastic photography skills because it's not such a big deal to shoot a butterfly like a butterfly but look! You made a butterfly look like a bow tie without any graphic editing!! Now isn't that something?! Keep up the good work
