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:
