One of my goals when I went eastward was to photograph as many new critters as I could. Well, I didn’t see all that many, but the ones I did see, for the most part, allowed me time to image them.
A good example is my post two weeks ago of the Eastern Tiger Swallowtail.
Well, on one of my last days in Illinois, I went to the Braidwood Dunes and Savanna Nature Preserve. Wandering the paths of the park, I found a few good subjects.
One was this American Copper.
I was rather pleased to come across this butterfly. I see coppers here, but not this species.
