Love the Hairstreak butterfly! It looks to be the size of a U.S. dime, or a bit smaller. They are damned difficult to shoot! I found it pictured here: Butterflies of Texas http://www.duke.edu/~jspippen/butterflies/texaslycaenids.htm

You will be quite pleased with near triple the pixel count of your new camera. Please post lenses used with hairstreak and fly.

That means minimal DOF! Nice capture.
