Macro Lens Versus Telephoto Lens

It butterfly time again. After a long absence they are back :-)

I am very happy with the great info you guys have provided for my "Photoshop" discussion. Thanks again my friends.


So here is the question of the day. when you shoot butterflies or other macro objects what is your preferred lens. do you like dedicated Macro lens or telephoto lens. i personally like Telephoto lens for shooting Macro objects due to the flexibility and better focus. also it helps photographing these beautiful small objects without waking them up. any input / thoughts will be greatly appreciated.
