Here is the balance of my weekend shooting, including friendly rabbits and cooperative bees and wasps.
This rabbit and I made friends. I believe it is s domestic rabbit released in the park.
It was very tame, and would eat blackberries from my hand.
here is a huge aggregation of Ammophila on a dead tansy stalk.
Of course, I have some Coelioxys shots.
This one is thinks it is super funny.
Here is a stack I took of a Coelioxys…I may try this again!
A harvestperson at sunset.
With lighting from either side, these Coelioxys look like they should be hawking Gatorade or Pennzoil or something.
Random midge shot. Without a Cognisys, it is just spray and pray.
The next morning at dawn, I found this sphecid (species ID anyone?) resting. These guys tend to be less gregarious than the Ammophila.
A syrphid stretching.
These two neonate garter snakes I found just a couple of metres apart.
This fledgling sharp shined hawk was sitting on top of an RV, right above the open skylight. I wonder if the occupants saw it.
