Butterflies from my garden to other countries

While birding, I often see Butterflies, and sometimes, I stop to capture this beautiful moment.
Another wild animal flying with gracefulness, with coloured wings,
wonderful while it touches lightly on some flower.

Almost all of these pictures were taken with Nikon D2X and Sigma 500mm, avoiding to disturb butterflies.I was at about 4 to 5 metres, in my car, and they didn't move.
Some of them are taken with Nikon D100 and Nikon 50mm f 1.4.
