The Peony and the Wasp

Late Spring, Montreal, 2012. While dozens of peonies are being helped open with the formic acid that ants secrete. This one is being inspected by a wasp. Or perhaps just casually digesting an ant previously devoured on the next door neighbor.   Nikon D700/Nikkor 70-200mm+ TC20E-III @400mm f5.6, 1/1250s, ISO400 Copyright Fritschi © Photographs 2000-2016

Cardinal in Winter

Northern Cardinal/Cardinal rouge (C. cardinalis) Even snow and cold temperatures do not deter this gorgeous bird to visit our Montreal backyards. A little difficult to camouflage such radiant colour against a white background or leafless trees. Ce magnifique oiseau nous visite malgré la neige et les grands froids. Bien entendu, sa couleur le rend d’autant plus visible lorsque les feuilles quittent nos feuillus pour l’hiver. D700 / 70-200mm f2.8G VRII + TC20E III @ 400mm – f5.6 at 1/1600s ISO 2000   Cardinal Look Female Cardinal in Winter Male Cardinal in Winter  ...
