These ones are even worse in terms of being cooperative. Just realized there is also a bug on the same flower the moth is on, good luck IDing those :D  :D

Lovely captures. You are really getting the hang of close-up work
with your kit lens, whatever that might be. What do you do with
your 150mm - 600mm when you remove it for the kit lens?
Are you perhaps using two cameras, or a P&S camera for the macro shots?
Do I ask to many questions?
Oh, that's a question too?
Isn't it?
Somebody stop me!

I have two smaller lenses, one 35-55, the other one 55-250. I don't use them much for bird watching for obvious reasons. But the butterfly is next door, I have ample time to change. I just got another swallowtail. How can the black swallowtail be both blue version and yellow version?
