20160630 Big Lake Morning, Burwash Nest Box

We got up early to check out a possible site at Big Lake to photograph the Milky Way.  Some pix from the occasion:

Arrival about Sunrise + 40 minutes, with the long lens:

P1370257-1-2

A little later with the Nokton 10.5mm f/0.95 lens, which I’m going to use for some night photography.

P1370272-1

Back to the 100-400 mm fully extended:

P1370300-1

The Damselfly Bluets were out in great profusion …

P1370318-1

The first Monarch Caterpillar that I’ve seen this year.

P1370326-1

A little further down Hwy 529, Twin Rivers was calm as the morning mist evaporated:

Later in the day we went to Sudbury to get some parts for my boat and chatted with Brad, a naturalist who knows a lot about Burwash.  He suspected that the nestlings that I showed in the previous post are Peregrine Falcon chicks.  The nesting box seems awfully low to the ground for Peregrins, though:

Happy Canada Day!
