Thanks, Martha (alas, no relation).
I'm using a Canon 20D with a 100mm macro lens (and Canon Speelight 580
flash) for most of my insect images. But those two butterfly images came
with my trusted old Nikon Coolpix 4500. It's astonishing what that camera
can do. Sadly, they're no longer in production. But I suspect many newer
point-and-shoot digital cameras perform even better. I saw a credit-card
sized (almost) Pentax last week that generated some amazing images.
