Very nice capture.
Interesting. It looks like the leaf and the butterfly both have been nibbled around the edges.

Butterfly or moth? I'm not sure. Thought it was too lively to be a moth.

Some type of caterpillar on Texas Nettle. I never could figure out which end was the head, turns out I got the tail end twice. Texas Nettle has about the best defensive capabilities of any North American plant. But in spite of these capabilities, nature will find a way to exploit the plant.
I wasn't about to try to turn the stem with my free hand for a better angle like I do with a lot of photos. I've only had one fight with TX Nettle, I lost that fight, ain't about to try it again. Sometimes I learn from the first experience. :)

I've no idea what the first one is, and I think the second one may be a meadow brown, but I'm probably wrong. I'm sure Jack Dawe or Lester W will soon put me right.  :p

Hi Terry. Nice pics again. The second one certainly looks like a Meadow Brown to me. Your first one is actually a Cinnebar moth - pretty things, aren't they?

Many thanks, Jack. Yes, absolutely beautiful. Should have known it was a moth. Chuffed I identified the meadow brown!

I didn't know if moth's were "allowed" or not but I am posting anyway! Here is a male Polyphemus moth almost 24 hours old... They have a 6 inch wingspan and only live for 7 days... When my wife saw it she thought a spider was eating a butterfly... :)

I usually shoot butterflies with my macro setup but if I see something while lugging my 500mmII for early morning wildlife, it's always fun to see what a 12ft reach looks like :-). I took the shot even though the plant being in the way messed it up :oops:. A few seconds later, it flew away, out of reach.
