fair harbor fisheye view (late afternoon, ocean side)
Annual trip to Fair Harbor, Fire Island, New York, and various points along the Fire Island National Seashore. This time, I brought my trusty Samyang 7.5mm m4/3 manual fisheye (big bang for the buck, and a whole lot of fun).
And here’s a smattering of typical Fire Island wildlife photos featuring deer and shore birds, even though I did not have a proper wildlife lens, only a slow, f/4-5.6, m4/3 60-150mm (oh, btw, this is what you get with a proper, 300mm wildlife lens). But this time the set includes a praying mantis which made a surprise appearance on the kitchen window screen before lunch (likely awaiting lunch his/herself as it perched above a window flower box, waiting for hapless insects to come within reach).
turn and run from the surf!
good morning, deer
hello there praying mantis

And here are a few more photos, including a surprise appearance by Dr. Seuss and your typical array of sunset shots because of course. Also including an homage to the evening ritual of heading down to the Bay, gin and tonic (with lime, of course) in hand just before and after sunset (photo composition and title (Fair Harbor Properly Approached at Sunset) credit: David Aimen ;)).
