Nice. Impressive pics. I don't know if it's more patience or dumb luck, or patience to wait for the dumb luck, or a good eye to see the dumb luck when it appears, or, most likely, all of the above. Either way, good job.

Birdy, I'm very fond of taking photos of these butterflies too. You got some great shots....the mating pair, especially! Simply love that blue, when they spread their wings.
