Something I hadn't thought of is the cataloging aspect.  Specifically, file naming.  How are you going to identify a particular butterfly once you have thousands of images?    You'll need/want to have some sort of naming scheme, and you'll also want to have EXIF data embedded that identifies the specimen.

Adding that EXIF data has to be done in post, probably best at the moment of upload to a PC.   Get too many images stacked up, and it's going to get harder and harder to add in the needed descriptive data.   My guess is that it's best done on each photo as you take it, with the camera tethered to a PC and saving the image directly onto the PC rather than in the camera.
