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...

Pill Bug Twirl

Macro Table, Montreal. Pill bugs have the ability to twirl their bodies on a vertical axis. This led me to wonder what a horizontal twirl might look like. Nikon D700/Nikkor 105mmm f16, 1/2s, ISO800 Copyright Fritschi © Photographs 2000-2014

Wood Duck Posturing

Wood Duck/Branchu (Aix sponsa) Lac Boivin, Qc. October 2011. This male wood duck seems to want to enjoy the last rays of sun to their fullest. Or is he rehearsing a posture for the spring mating season ? Branchu mâle se chauffant les plumes au soleil couchant ou en prélude de pariade…..

Big Woody Rampage

This rarely seen pileated woodpecker decided to target this tree not far from my house during the Spring of 2008. Two years later the tree had to be taken down. It had not survived the assault. . Nikon D200, Nikkor 18-200mm @200mm; f5.6, 1/200s, ISO360 Copyright Fritschi © Photographs 2000-2014

Mallard Couple in Flight

Mallards/Colverts (Anas platyrhynchos) St-Catherine Locks, Qc, Canada. February 2012. A mallard couple in flight, close enough to be in the same frame and with ice in the background makes for a very happy photographer. Taken on a sunny morning near the Saint-Catherine Locks on the south shore of the Saint-Lawrence River near Montreal. Un couple colvert survolant les glaces de février aux écluses Sainte-Catherine sur le fleuve Saint-Laurent, près de Montréal. Nikon D700, 70-200mm f2.8 + TC-20E III @400mm; f6.3, 1/1250s, ISO400.

Is it a bird?

Fall 2011, Parc des Iles de Boucherville. I’ve always loved backlighting in spite of all its challenges. The diaphanous quality of this image makes it a winner. Nikon D700, 70-200mm f/2.8+ TC-20E III @400mm;  f6.3, 1/800s, ISO 800 Copyright Fritschi © Photographs 2000-2014

Flooded Fields

Lac Saint-Pierre, is an area of the Saint-Lawrence River that widens enough to be called a Lake. In the Spring of 2011 the waters had swollen to the point of leaping over banks and flooding fields. A great visual opportunity for someone on a jon boat armed with a camera. May 2011. Nikon D300, Nikkor 28-300mm FX @42mm; f10, 1/500s ISO200   Copyright Fritschi © Photographs 2000-2014

Driving through the very picturesque region of Kamouraska, on a road that meanders between the Saint-Lawrence river and the valley, the sky decided to put on an angry face. Canon G9 Copyright Fritschi Photographs 2000 © 2014 – all rights reserved
