Kathy, Thank You for sharing not only your photos but also a little about the where and how of your observations. I hope your influence continues to introduce people to what I call 'inverting'. May they copy your behavior and example instead of your photos.  
Happy to hear you take many of your photos in your family's pollinator garden. I often stress to folks that there is no need to travel far, no further than their backyard. Wonders abound in just getting to know our backyard invertebrate neighbors.  
Congratulations on the many awards for your website. Thank you for donating photos of individual insects for use in books and other material to help others see what we see, and enjoy what we enjoy in getting to know our arthropod friends.

I understand your pain in the theft of your images. This issue keeps me from posting almost all of my work. How do you do your copyright? Can you do one that is a blanket copyright for all your work? And then how do you find the thefts?

Gail, you can register your images with the U.S.Copyright Office, and you can do so via a group registration of 750 images at the same time, if all taken in the same calendar year. The group registration must either be published or non-published,not mixed. Re image theft, you can see who's illegally using your images on Tin Eye, or Google Reverse Images. You can hire some agency like Image Rights International to represent you and your work.

I am very grateful for this article and your efforts. I trust Chip Taylor's expertise and I agree with the opinions with regard to yropical milkweed. I believe the planet is a big enough place for native and non-native milkweed. OE is on all milkweed, not just yropical. I did read a more recent study that has gomphocarpus physocarpus having a higher level of cardenolide than asclepias curassavica does. I fully expect hairy balls to be the next milkweed to go on the not wanted list.
