My Flora and Fauna Friday post this week is the Tree Swallow (Tachycineta bicolor), a member of the swallows and martins family found in the Americas.
This individual was photographed at Isaac Lake on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario last spring. The species traditionally nests in tree cavities but will use nestboxes. There are several areas at Isaac Lake with groups of nestboxes for them.
This is also a contribution to Becky’s July Squares: Trees photo challenge.
Old wooden piles sticking out of Colpoy’s Bay on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario at sunrise last Saturday.
With thick, solid cloud over the bay I was shooting minimalist images with the intention of doing monochrome conversions. Taken with the TTArtisan 35mm lens. Owning a large selection of 35mm lenses the TTArtisan is quickly becoming a favourite walk around lens.
