Wow! Great series! Clear and sharp! Small butterflies like the one in #1 and 2 are very difficult to shoot because they don't stay still long enough to be photographed. We have a small Cabbage White Butterfly in our area which looks somewhat the size of the one in picture #1 and 2. It is very hard to get a cleared shot at them in the wild.
