Thursday, due to the warm weather I decided to venture out and take a long walk by the Hudson. I reached Battery Park and back again, some 8.5 miles in spite of the hundreds of selfish and arrogant people who refuse to wear masks. Getting there was relatively easy and I sat resting in the park for a while with a large iced coffee before the long march back home which wasn’t so easy at all, requiring several rest periods. I have been sitting entirely too much these past few months hiding at home from the virus and in spite of recently starting to exercise on a Maxi Climber machine I’m not yet back to my former “I can do ten - eleven miles easy” self. I took my camera fitted with a fairly versatile 70-300 mm lens. I also dropped a pair of close-up rings in my bag. Just after my coffee and before heading home I discovered about a half dozen Monarchs enjoying the last flowers of Fall and as they seemed content to pose for me I grabbed a lot of shots using the 70-300 and the fore-mentioned close-up rings. #batterypark #monarchbutterflies #butterfliesofinstagram #butterflies #lowermanhattan #chrislordnyc #chrislord #pixielatedpixels #creativeimagery #nycphotographer #citywalks #natureinthecity #nature_perfection #nature_wizards #naturephotography #nature_brilliance — view on Instagram
