Very nice John, I foresee a macro lens in your future! I can ID the first one, it is a Long Tailed Skipper butterfly, I got a shot of one today as well.

It was a Lester A Dine 105mm f/2.8 macro lens. It was made by Kiron and you can find the same lens as a Kiron 105mm f/2.8 and a Vivitar Series 1 105mm f/2.5. Roy (Robar) recommended it to me when I first joined this forum and my only regret is that I did not buy a second one back when they went in the $100-$150 range.

Thanks Tim,
after you said Lester Dine, I remembered what you had told me. I'm keeping my eye out for one!
