A Row of Fence Posts

CBWC: Fence Posts

A row of fence posts on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario in monochrome.

Photographed in spring this year on one of the rare outings for my bag of auto-focus zooms. The long end of my telephoto zoom allowed me to compress the perspective of the fence posts.

This is my contribution to Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Fences and Gates prompt.

Tree Swallow

Flora and Fauna Friday: Tree Swallow

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.
