Devil’s Brook   2 comments

Waves. Rocks. Brightly colored leaves.

An experimental photo. I took a long exposure of the stream, and panned the camera along the length of the stream. Anything not changing comes out as a pure streak, while the bubbles and other features that changed over the length of the exposure stand out.

Wells, Maine   2 comments

Long weekend in Southeastern Maine! First time exploring the area.

Rachel Carson National Refuge

Goose Rocks Beach, Cape Porpoise

Wells Jetty

This was tough…wasn’t easy to take photographs I was happy with. Ended up with a lot of longer exposure photos of the waves, the birds, and the waves and birds together. Not sure how good they will look to other people!

Trying to capture the movement of the birds as they swayed up and down the beach with the waves:

A flock of birds in motion:

Bonus Tiger Beetle

This lovely Cicindela sexguttata, Six-spotted Tiger Beetle, was waiting to welcome us home when we got back. Definitely has sustained quite a bit of damage, but lovely nonetheless.

Canoe River and Borderland State Park   Leave a comment

Late afternoon, in the late afternoon of the year. Some insects, and a stunning show of light.

“Noctuid moth, Heliothis or relative”

“Anagrapha falcifera”

Fall late afternoon backlighting! Love the light.

Tachinidae, Trichopoda.

Tachinid fly, I think.

Halictus, I believe.

I’m not sure how I got the light in this photo to come out like this!

Alydidae.

Now the Borderland State Park part of the trip.

Such a stunning portrait of a robber fly:

Probably Platygastridae.

Time for the next generation of Leucauge venusta:

Perhaps Diapriidae, according to the lack of venation on the wings.

Psychidid (aka drain fly):

Some insect signs:
