I took a weekend trip to Sheldon Reservoir since it was fairly close to the house. That place is pretty rustic compared to the parks I have been to previously. I went there mainly to try my hand at shooting some birds, but ended up taking a few Butterfly photos as well.
This first shot is just a partial view of the Reservoir. If you look really close you can see some guy in a boat, but other than that the place was deserted.
One particular Butterfly that I don’t have in my backyard, but that was prevalent at this place was the Common Buckeye.
I also saw a Queen Butterfly.
There were also a few Monarchs on the Ragweed. This first photo is a female Monarch.
And here’s a male Monarch.
Last, but not least, there were quite a few Gulf Fritillaries. All of the Butterflies were still trying to warm up when I captured these pictures.
