Admission to all Mn State Parks was free today. I took advantage of this and visited Minneopa State Park near Mankato MN. I will post some shots.

This butterfly was kind enough to sit for me on the banks of Minneopa Creek

Loved those pictures. I like way you shot the falls and that shot of the butterfly was beautiful. What were your settings on the shots of the falls?

For the first shot:
Kit Lens at 31mm, shutter priority, f20, exposure time 1/4 sec.

For the second shot:
Kit lens at 55mm, shutter priority, f29, 1 second exposure.

I also had a circular polarizer on and, or course, the camera was mounted on a tripod.
