Default Moths and Butterflies

Here are a couple of shots of some very hairy moths and some butterflies at Brookside Gardens in Maryland. Through September they have a really nice indoor butterfly exhibit there. I'm going to head back soon on a day I can spend more time there. I could truly sit there all day watching these amazing creatures!

Fantastic macro work. It looks like you used a Canon. Which lens?

Wow, I appreciate the compliment! The 105 is a great lens. I need to work on my composition a little bit to really use it to the fullest, but I'm never disappointed with it's performance.
