I photographed butterflies differently
against the sun, with shutter speeds from 1/8000 to 1/6400 here is the result.

Excellent!

I think I may want to replicate the idea myself, how did you focus these? Did you set the camera pointing to suitable direction and waited for any butterflies to fly past or did you hand held to actively look for butterflies?

I quite like the first one, though the white sun is a bit distracting in both.

Very interesting and impressive. I'm also curious to hear about your technique to focus these.

It was not easy, 200 shots for a few photos
The set two lavender plants on the windowsill, Tripod, remote shooting, multiple shots, point of reference fixed manual focus between two branches





conclusion: I am not very satisfied with the result

Although they may not be tack sharp, I wouldn't be too dissapointed with the results!

They show the structures and colours of the wings incredibly well and for such a hard to execute shot, you done very good! I like the the contrast in the first two images.
