While we were looking for photo subjects at Plainsboro Preserve, I spotted this Buckeye Butterfly working this flower. The Butterflies and Dragonflies all seem to have a look of wear & tear now this time of year. But it is still fun to get some photos. I was using a Canon 400mm f/4 DO lens with an extension tube for closer focusing. This Buckeye had quite a bit of wing damage.
Beautifully captured, Reed! Oh, poor thing to have so much wing damage… 😦
Thanks Donna! The butterflies & dragonflies seem to have a lot of wing damage this time of year. Seems like they have a hard life!
