Very impressive to see photos of butterflies in flight. I don't think I have ever seen a picture of a butterfly in full wings down position before. Assuming these were taken in Texas, I would guess they are a Black Swallowtail and a male Cloudless Sulphur. the 400 blurred the backgrounds perfectly. Well done.
