Hudson resident photographs the beauty of the great outdoors.
Hobbyist and nature photographer Lisa Townsend captured this photo in her Hudson backyard. “When [my plants] bloom, they attract so many bees and butterflies and birds. This painted lady stopped by, and I was excited to be able to get some photos,” Townsend says. “I love living here.” See more of Townsend’s photography on her Instagram @lisaannephotography.
