    A little soft, but nice shot nonetheless. I only see the butterfly though....where's the moth?

    for some strange reason, there are two postings. The other one has all of the images. I think that the black one is a moth, but I could be incorrect. If not, I stand corrected.

  5. First one is a Polydamus Swallowtail, Usually found only in Florida and in the SW coast area of Texas. The second a Gulf Fritillary. Only butterflies have a "club" at the end of the antennae.

    Cheers,
