    Fantastic! Number 2 is without a doubt my favorite. For me personally I like the coloring better.
     
  3. Great detail in the shots! But, unless I am mistaken, that is a moth, not a butterfly.

    I was always told that butterfly's had antennas and moths did not have them. That's always been the way I could tell them apart. Plus it was 2:00 in the afternoon which I usually don't see moths out at that time. I could be mistaken with all of that though.

    I have no idea what it is, however I know good images when I see them. These are certainly an example of that, well done and thanks for sharing with us.

    Definitely a Butterfly. It looks to be a member of the Skipper family and looks similar to the Small Skipper we get in the UK.

    Nice shots Nate.
