Taken on a mild winter morning, I was the first person to lay down footprints in the fresh blanket of snow on a peaceful walk along the Troy Brook.

A common local dragonfly but I find them also showy.

As reported on wikipedia the Twelve-spotted Skimmer is found on all contiguous 48 states of the USA – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twelve-spotted_skimmer

I liked the distinct banding on this moth at rest.

Vesper Sparrow at Troy Meadows NJ

Yesterday was my first day out in the field using the Metabones T Smart Adapter.  I am using the Metabones with my arsenal of lenses for the Canon EF mount in order to pair them with my Panasonic Lumix GH4 and G7.  I think this can be a great combination for wildlife videography especially given the GH4’s large crop factor for 4K filming of 2.49x!  The effective reach of my Tamron SP 150-600mm VC G2 is nearly 1500mm which can be very effective for filming small or distant wildlife such as birds.
