I love getting out during the summer to photograph nature, especially butterflies, birds, and landscapes. I keep meaning to post more images, instead I’m out shooting! Here are a few favorites.
This summer has been glorious, and I have been out every weekend exploring different parks, especially in the Pine Barrens region in Burlington and Atlantic Counties. We’ve also gone to various reserves in Cape May County. I have taken hundreds massive amounts of photos, including landscapes, birds, trees, salt marshes. However, I still look for butterflies. While I didn’t get any butterfly pictures in June, the later part of July was better, and August thus far seems great. I will post more pictures from various parks, but thought I’d share some butterflies from yesterday in a nearby park.
I am finally starting to see some monarchs! I’m glad. I took hundreds this week, many flying in the air with their wings in various states of flap. Fun stuff. Yesterday I spent the final late afternoon of August at the a Rutger’s extension photographing some of the gardens and some butterflies. I’ll post more of those in the coming days.
Yesterday was a fabulous weather day in central, NJ. Today was also great up until about 3 p.m. Both days I spent a few hours photographing butterflies. Here are a few favorites from today.
It’s that time of year when I’m out at least every weekend in search for butterflies and other interesting things to photograph. The weather has been very hot, so I only stay out for an hour or two before I stop. I took this photo in a field of cone flowers in central New Jersey. In the coming days/weeks I’ll be posting more.
Soon I’ll be offering for sale my Nikon D80 body. Watch for it, if you’re interested.
I spent a couple hours for the past three afternoon taking butterfly picture. While have many that are very pretty, this one was pure good timing!
I took this photo at Colonia Park in Franklin Park, NJ on September 1st. I just happened to focus and hit the shutter just as the butterfly took off. This is one of my favorites from the season, and I plan on posting more. I’m also thinking about putting together a 2013 calendar of butterfly pictures. If I can find something reasonable, I may try to offer it through my website. We’ll see.
