And since digital cameras have that delay after you press the button, it's even harder to get the shot you want! I just take a lot and sort them out afterward. :) Thank you for the very kind comment!

TextileRanger, Your collection of Swallowtails Butterflies is fantastic. I will try that with the Swallowtails here, (holding my breath... ; ), they just will not stop fluttering and have not been able to get any good pictures.

I held my breath the whole time I was taking pictures, afraid to scare it off! :)
