Here are some not yet published photos of butterflies and a young Snowy Egret I took in September at the refuge.
This morning I went to the refuge to photograph birds. There were indeed many egrets, terns, gulls, vultures, and so on. But I saw two unfamiliar butterflies and could not resist taking their pictures.
The first one, a Sleepy Orange, started to fly away as I took the shot, but you can still see its vibrant colors.
The second one was a Common Buckeye (Big Eyes) Butterfly which took its time feeding and allowed me to take many shots.
