The Swallowtail of course, is the prettier shot, but that of the moth is a hundred times more diffiuclt and you did a good job!

Thanks, Houston. Heh, does anyone know if I incorrectly labeled the white one?From what someone else said on another forum, only butterflies have long antenae.

The proper heading would have been "Butterfly and another Butterfly" The second is a very common little guy called a Cabbage White. For the most part Butterflys have the straight antenna where moths have those resembling a feather.

Nice shots mullen. Impressed with the second butterfly. I've been chasing them and the
yellow version for a while. They just don't sit still long enough for me before they take
off again. (talking blink of the eye type of time frame)

Thanks, guys and Tomsch, thanks for the educational tip, too, regarding butterfly/moth identification.

I keep forgetting which is which - One of them has tufts on the end of their antenna, the other one doesn't.

But they both have antenna..

So, if we take a good look at the Swallowtail....
