The second butterfly (pictures 3 & 4) is a Giant Swallowtail. I have them in my back yard, but I can't get one to sit still for me. [The first (1 & 2) is a Western Tiger Swallowtail]

Good pictures. Nicely done.

Great pics. So many times we take them for granted, and yet they are so cool to just stop and watch.

Thank you hung, I was using my Sigma 150mm f/2.8 Macro. I thought my flash was working on the swallow tails but I had failed to push it all the on to my hot shoe. Because the first 25 shots or so didn't have flash I had to do a little work in Photoshop Elem. to brighten them up a bit.

Thanks to everyone for the nice comments.

All the best,
Steve
