Great photos Bambi!

how do you take these shots... are they studio or do they give you enough time to setup your tripod. and is there a fill flash I see? (God I have alot of questions?)
just how did you do it? (if you don't mind sharing)?

thanks everyone! no worries about the questions Bol Ray! Because I was in such a confined location I was able to take my time and figure out my shots. I put on my 55-200 lens. Sometimes I used fill flash but no tripods. It would have been impossible in such a setting (even if I had it!). Mostly I watch the butterflies and either waited for them to land or grabbed them when they did. I had lots of misses but given there were so many, it was okay.

Very nice set Bambi. That first one is a very cool flutterby.
