Fort River Trail, Moodybridge Road, Hadley

The recently-planted pollinator gardens at the Fort River trailhead off Moodybridge Road in Hadley have been a delight. Although by mid-October the summer flowers were gone, the fall asters were in bloom, much to the delight of the few remaining butterflies. I captured these two, which I believe may be Clouded Sulphurs, with my tripod-mounted DSLR camera and a medium telephoto lens.
