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.
