Oh, beautiful pictures!! Did you use a zoom? Also, I meant to comment earlier on your header, it is beyond cool!!! Looks like a carpenter bee, the one I did a post on?

That little bee in your header is really taking a header into that flower--drinking it dry. Beauty. I'm curious about the Monarch Butterflies. In the western U.S. they migrate to CA and Mexico in the winter. I doubt they would have a reason to migrate in HI, but how did they get there?
