Acadia National Park   Leave a comment

 

We spent a week in Acadia National Park, and had a wonderful time.  Not much time for photography, and a lot of that was during the afternoon, when the photos tend to get washed out.  Still a great visit!

Here’s a loon that was nesting.  To be clear, we did stay outside the roped-out area, so as not to disturb it.

There was a Pelecenid wasp at our house, and those are always very photogenic.  Those ovipositors are spectacular!

I went to photograph a Syrphid fly, and it turns out that there was an elephant weevil in the photograph when I looked at it later.  Embarrassingly, the elephant weevil was in better focus than the Syrphid fly.

I love this photograph of a caterpillar — the perspective works!

Some beetle hanky-panky.  Sorry.  Let’s move on.

As mentioned earlier, the photographs did not do justice to the scenery.  Apologies for that, and it means I need to make another trip.

I went to catch the sunrise at the beach, but missed the peak color by a few minutes.  Here are a few photos that I was able to take.

I’m going to add the black and white versions, just to see how they compare:
