Some butterflies spotted over the last few days

Some #butterflies spotted over the last few days:

A monarch that nicely paused on the grass with its wings open, long enough to catch a clear photo.

A swallowtail that I sort of caught in flight, at a distance. It’s very low-resolution, but it’s also clearly identifiable!

A cabbage white that I was able to catch with a zoom lens.

I didn’t have much luck photographing #birds this time, but I did catch some good shots of this one. Though I’m not sure what it is. Maybe a warbler?

This #squirrel was one of three that scattered as I approached a trail junction. The other two hid. This one froze. It blended in very well!

And while I *saw* lots of #butterflies, this mourning cloak is the only one that held still long enough for me to get a #photo.

A #monarch butterfly in flight. I’ve been seeing one or two each time I go for a walk in the neighborhood, but mostly they’re flying around too much for me to get a decent photo. This one decided to stick around this one bush for a while.
