I think the second one is a moth and not a butterfly.

You got some nice photos. I think the clear winner is the hibiscus.

The focal length you are using should help a lot. You may want to try manual focus and using focus peeking or the focus magnifying may be better. I don't know what Nikon calls their features but I hope this will help.

Thanks for the feedback.  I like the hibiscus, too.

Autofocus was struggling all afternoon, for reasons I don't understand yet.  My guess is the wall of the building behind me was strongly reflecting sunlight, causing strong backlighting and making objects other than the subject more "interesting" to the camera.

I'll give manual focus a try.  Thanks for the suggestion.
