    Thanks everyone!

    @PlantPlanter: Thanks! That's my old username, feels good to finally be growing out of it!

    @ToG: I've thought of it, but I'm slow, so my world changing would probably be interrupted by a hungry photographic subject...

    @Wire: Oh! Thanks for telling me what it was called! And yes, Hadfield is the hero that Canada both needs and deserves, we treat him as royalty up here..

    @Amp, Drew, and Corky, Thanks!

    @incspir: Ohh, scuba diving, that'll be something I'll be raring to get into once I get my underwater case!


    And a couple more pictures:

    Finally made it to a Dark Sky Preserve in Southern Ontario and was able to hone my astrophotography skills without the interference of city lights. I also got a couple of Perseids and quite a few satellites in some of the shots. They're all 30 second exposures at ISO 3200:

    It was a tad cloudy, so the large reddish patches with no stars are passing clouds.

    This one has a really nice meteor in it:

    This one has a satellite and a blinky little airplane:

    I got a meteor and a satellite in this one:

    Only one satellite in this one:

    There's a few more images in the full set:

    I also managed to find a nice little praying mantis yesterday, the photos are a bit odd, but I think they look nice:

    I also spotted this Eastern Garter Snake killing and eating a Northern Leopard Frog yesterday, unfortunately by the time I got to my camera it had already basically finish, but I got a nice shot of it with the foot of the frog sticking out of it's mouth:

    And to finish off, a little green frog:

    Thanks for looking!

    Two more random shots from my Uncle's backyard yesterday, it was cloudless, so these are much more visually pleasing, I think.

    As some of you may know, I recently moved to Guelph to attend university (BSc, Zoology), and I've been trying to find nice places around the city to practice my "talents"...

    I'm waiting on clear skies to let me see how the stars are here, so I decided to go out and walk around for a bit.

    I did end up finding a nice patch of Goldenrod bustling with insects, so I busted out the 40mm macro and the Strobe and tried to take some shots of the wasps/hoverflies:

    M. cinctella (?) in flight

    Vespula sp. in flight

    Bombus sp. feeding

    Vespula sp. feeding

    M. cinctella (?) feeding

    Cicadellidae sp. (?) resting

    Anyone have an idea of what this guy could be?

    I also spotted a small Eastern Cottontail and proceeded to ninja crawl through the mud in order to get closer:

    S. floridanus (Eastern Cottontail)

    Full quality set of insect photos:

    Quite impressive shots Gabe! I love the hoverfly with its iridescent wings.
    You must have some pretty decent camera equipment too

    Thanks everyone!

    @Richjam; yeah, pretty much! Behind every good photographer there's a good camera!
