I love the butterfly shot, what lens and shutterspeed did you use for that?

GreatMoth shot Mullen! You were close on your identification. It's commonly called a humming bird, sphinx or Hawk moth. Not sure whatvarietybut you should be able to pick him out on the link below.

I agree with the others, great photos. Also curious about what lens you were using. I'm thinking of investing in a macro and am following the experiences of others.

Thank you for the nice compliments. For those that asked, these were taken with a fixed lens Panasonic FZ 20. It allows me to get as close as a few centimeters when in aperture priority mode. I've listed the settings and 35mm lens equivalencies with the pics. KEM, thanks for the help with the id.
