We went hiking today in Aiken Canyon Nature Preserve, a beautiful area for hiking along SH 115, south of Colorado Springs and Cheyenne Mountain State Park. While hiking the Aiken Canyon Loop Trail, a great 4 mile trail that takes you through forests, fields, and dry creek beds, we saw lots of butterflies feeding on the wildflowers. I used a Canon 6D DSLR camera and a Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM lens to take this photo.
