If I am outside, there is nearly a 100% chance a camera with a large telephoto lens is hanging off my shoulder. I can’t help it, I am obsessed with photographing wildlife that people have no idea are right in front of them. It has increased my enjoyment of the outdoors significantly by just slowing down and soaking in the surroundings.
For example, the photo to the right is of an eastern tailed blue butterfly that was sitting on a blade of grass. It isn’t much larger than my thumbnail.
This is just one of the many things I spotted and captured at Fort Williams Park. I had a few animals I was hoping to catch a glimpse of, like seals and porpoise, and within our first few hours in Maine, I had already seen both. The seals in particular were much closer to shore than I expected to see them.
Below is the photo gallery of everything I was able to capture (click photos to enlarge). I hope everyone enjoys them!
