This is Willow. We were 650 miles away when she joined the household. She appeared the day before we were due to leave for Maine. I tried to get her then but she was spooked by another cat so I missed my chance. I asked Diane our cat sitter to try and get her and she did! The very next day! Well she was fixed, tested, vaccinated, de-flea'ed etc. She's a cute little thing so we'll keep her.

Turdus migratorius

In other words an American Robin. This is a nice adult that paid me a visit at my bird feeder one morning last week. I've been screwing around with a new lens and it's looking promising so far.

Bluey had a hard day.

Bluey's had a really hard day today, poor little boy.


Rolling Rascal

Rascal was rolling around in the sunshine this afternoon so obviously she wanted her picture taken.

The early Cardinal gets the mealworms

I don't actually know if Cardinals eat dried mealworms but this one was at the feeder early this morning so he got his picture taken. It was still quite dark and overcast so I used flash which is why the backgrounds dark.

These were taken at Sieur de Monts on a bright sunny midday using a Sony A7R converted to Infrared then turned into Black and White.

Acadia - A few more.

We spent Friday evening sitting on Schoodic Point looking at the night sky. There was a cool breeze blowing but by opening the sunroof and reclining the seats we had a marvelous view. I've added a panorama I took on the way down to the point and another shot of Ravens Nest.
