Bright Treetops

The lower marsh is in shadow while the treetops are lit up as the sun sets below clouds today. Sometimes glimpses of the sun are fleeting.

We went out to finish trimming branches along the road this afternoon. These bracket fungi might be birch polypore mushrooms (Piptoporus betulinus) even though they were growing on unhealthy poplar trees.

It started to snow and snow this afternoon and then the electricity went out. I went for a walk down the road to try to find an obstruction. The visibility was poor while it snowed, but I also didn’t see anything. A few hours after we called in the outage, Hydro came by and the electricity came back on.

I went out for a few hours this afternoon to keep trimming the branches of the evergreens along our property. The municipality did a nasty job of it last month, cutting branches off roughly, mid stalk. They also ripped some branches and left them hanging and I hope those trees survive. My new battery-powered Stihl MSA 140C is perfect for this job. It’s light and turns on and off quickly and easily so it’s perfect for trimming branches.

Cardinal

1/100s, f5.3, 800ISO, autoWB, 105mm. cropped

This cardinal has been coming back, day after day, fighting his reflection in the window. While it makes for mostly good photos (save for some small reflections from the glass), it doesn’t seem healthy for the bird. This alternate-leaf dogwood shrub is also becoming a tree so I’m going to move it to a location where there is more room for it to grow that’s not right beside my house.

Dusty Bug

1/100s, f9, 800ISO, autoWB, 90mm Tamron macro with extension tubes.

This bug covered in bits of dust is likely Reduvius personatus and it’s probably the last insect macro of the year.

Leaves Suspended

It was a rainy day today and I thought I’d try some leaf painting – I collected leaves and stuck them in the branches of a nannyberry. I don’t think this is very successful but the leaf colours are pretty in the rain.
