I have been attempting each day to shot a few photos using my new macro lens. Yesterday morning before going to the Cohasset Arts Festival, I found this willing subject sipping nectar on my mock orange bush.
The colors on the underside of the butterfly are a bit more muted.
This butterfly was missing a section of its wing, but it didn't appear to hamper its flight at all.
Lastly, here's a poppy from my friend Donna's garden. I only had my compact camera with me, but it did a good job capturing it.
