Very nice, colorful shots.

Number 2 and 3 are my favorites.

All beautiful images. The Red Admiral shots on the flowers get my vote, mainly because they are in a more natural setting.

Beautiful -- are they butterflies or moths?
In reply to Sonyshine, 11 months ago

The San Diego Zoo said one can distinguish butterflies from moths because their resting stance is wings upright and pinched together, not spread out like these photos are.   Yet, Wikipedia says butterfly attennae have balls at end and are more colorful, which these photos certainly are.

Anyone know how to tell for sure?

Wonderful shots.  I wish my FZ200 would take photos like yours, lol.
