Summer is here...and has been for some time.  I have been fairly busy with work and baby stuff lately, but have been out to do the odd birding and naturalizing.  I have been having fun with my camera.  Here are a few random shots from the summer so far.

I had fun photographing these Common Terns on the Niagara River. Their erratic flight is a challenge to capture!

Great Blue Heron

Great Egret

I recently got a new prime lens for my Fuji.  16mm 1.4 and have been enjoying experimenting with this wide angle lens.  

Despite being a wide angle lens, it does good pseudo-macro.  I captured this beat up Striped Hairstreak and a few soldier beetles.

With the wide aperture, the 16mm handles low light very well! I tested it out last night after a heavy rainstorm in Fergus.  Not my typical nature photo shoot, but fun to try out!

My favourite shot of the night.  Shot through the windshield, but a neat scene.
