I'm using my 50 for no particular reason I guess
Hey, that's when it's fun! When I have a reason, it means I'm working.
I like your shot.
It needs some Photoshopping for contrast and levels, maybe a tweak to unsharp mask, but it's good.
Tells a story.
"Butterflies are doing it."
Poor guy (gal?) on bottom of image (the one "on top"

Do butterflies fight before mating? Foreplay wounds?
Butterflies are large enough to preclude need of a macro lens. You can include some environment that way.
2x adapters can help too, at getting closer, without needing macro or tubes.
