Valley Views: Local photographers aim their cameras outdoors

On a warm day in late August, I drove to the Mount Sugarloaf State Reservation in South Deerfield with my camera equipment to see what photo opportunities there might be. The sky was bright blue with some great cumulus clouds. However, it was the large number of moths and butterflies that caught my attention. I took this photo of a Painted Lady butterfly that had landed on a flower next to the tower.
