Flying Over Rocks
This is quite an interesting perspective. This is part of the "spay and prey" strategy of photography. I tried using my 400mm, but I couldn't get the focus right. 200 might have been possible.
Species: Papilio eurymedon (Pale Swallowtail)

At the time I figured it was probably a European Skipper. I'm learning there are more butterflies that share the general size of skippers.

Mourning Cloak On Fallen Log
This butterfly didn't perch for long, but it did keep coming back to the path. My strategy with Butterflies is to start taking photos, even when I'm quite far away so that I have "something".
