pesky critters

Trying to catch the one on the left I end up with another creature that I hadn't bargained on! What a pain trying to focus just where the butterfly would stop with wings wide open I find it stopping short with it's wings tight shut because this had flown in.

Nice shot, it is often the case they will close their wings even if a shadow passes over them.

Excellent capture and I agree with the wings shutting. So many times I have tried to get shots and they close their wings.
The other insect is a good bonus.

A great double capture, they are extremely difficult to photograph as they rarely keep still!
