0 Butterflies

Earlier this week I took a trip to New Paltz to the Nyquist Harcourt Wildlife Sanctuary and saw an abundance of wildlife from Swans, and Herons, Hawks, Hummingbirds, Ducks, and many more.  It was a great morning.  I only got a few shots of some of the small birds and the ducks, but the hawks and hummingbird shots appear to be over exposed from what I can see.  It was a really bright sun and I never changed my settings to compensate for the sky background compared to the ground background.  The herons stayed to far away and the swans stayed hidden, but they seem to stay in the shade in the same area, because they were in the same spot last time I was there. 
On my way back I stopped at the Bashakill Wildlife Management Area in Wurtsboro New York and didn't see very much, but there was an abundance of Butterflies.  I did get some nice shots of them so I decided I would post them first.  The one shot is a Monarch Butterfly but I'm not sure what the yellow one is called.  I'm hoping to get out a few more times before I go back to college, because I'm very limited when I get to school because everything has to be within walking distance.  Hope you enjoy the Butterfly photographs.
