On the way back from a quick trip to Sudbury on Monday (to pick up new long telephoto zoom lens) we stopped at Burwash to see how far spring had advanced. Here is the report:
First picture with this lens, a painted turtle viewing the new lens from a long ways away.
On Neilly Lake a Loon keeps an eye on the lens from mid lake, about 60 m away.
Mandatory shot of hazelnut bloom from about 2 metres.
On the way back some more painted turtles gathered on the communal log for a late afternoon bask:
On the old Hwy 69 down to the Killarney Rd, this drake posed for the new lens down sun…
In the shade he continued to prefer the left profile…
… and then pronounced that it was OK, with the right profile.
Mandatory spore capsules ..
Grackle posing from a long ways away.
Yes, I think that we’ll keep it!
Tuesday, May 2, we shot a lot more pix with it. Will post later.
