Yes as a matter of fact they are, and here's another angle of my new-found Longtail Skipper that has come to my garden

Gorgeous photos, John and Dale! Thanks for sharing them.

Now we can put to rest once and for all the question of which camera is "best": Just decide which one attracts the most interesting butterflies.

The one on the left is a male Monarch butterfly.  The other two look like Tiger Swallowtails...  Nice photos!

Very nice shots Dale ... and thanks Eric

WolfnOwl is right, the first is a monarch and the second two are tiger swallowtails (I belive western tigers) ...

I almost got to take a shot of a Great Purple Hairstreak today ... but the lil' guy just wouldn't let me get close enough

Hope some more people choose to share theirs!

I think the Canon is obviously better, as it can also name the butterflies!!

Ooh, I'm so happy I have the Right Brand. Now I've got to find a butterfly for it to identify.

These are very spectacular and colorful shots which demonstrate how useful P&S cameras are for macro photography.

Yet, there is a flat, 2-dimensional effect to the butterflies which I assume is due to the camera being used (in macro mode) with telephoto lens fully extended.

Is this the case? I don't have much experience using P&S cameras, which is why I ask. However, I can see that it might not be possible to get closer using a shorter focal length because the butterfly would take off.

It would be interesting to compare two macro shots of something that is stationary or unable to fly away, using both the short end and the long end of the lens.

Actually Ray, you often find the best macro setting is at the short end of the zoom with Canons. And the 3rd shot loks very wide angle like to me.
