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

Orsay Museum Clock

Orsay Museum Clock

Orsay Museum, Paris 2001. The old Orsay railway station became a fine arts museum in 1986. It is situated across from the Louvre on the left bank. It houses over 2,000 paintings and 600 sculptures. One can get a close up view of the large railway station clocks from inside the museum. I was quite impressed by the silhouette effect of the visitors back-lit by the sunlight coming through the glass panes of the clock. A solarization effect enhances the image.   Canons Powershot S20   Copyright Fritschi © Photographs...
