Lovely set - very cool set asnow - quite a few keepers!
I like shot 2 from post 1, but could be a bit brighter in post.
Shot 4 from post 2 and shot 3 from post 3 also catch my eye.

You have a great range of butterflies there! I like the blue triangle butterfly myself :)

That is quite a collection of butterflies. I like the variety shown here. The perspective in set#3 shot #3 is cool.

Great place to shoot. The group shot, #3 in the first set is my favorite. Good exposure and interesting contrasting colors.

#1 on both the first and third sets for me. Although all are very nicely taken.

Thanks guys. I think everybody has picked out my favourites as well. I rented the 100mm macro and it seemed to work out quite well for this. My only concern was that with the amount of light, I had to crank up the ISO to 1600 on my 7D and used a monopod. Some others had a tripod and didn't have enough time to set up before the butterflies moved. They gave up on that idea fairly quickly. The pics did have a bit of noise which I removed in Lightroom, however it does seem it left them just a tad soft in some cases.

My faves include but are not limited to Shot 3 of the first set and shot 2 of the third set. Great work overall!
