A Chipping Sparrow, a Carpenter Bee in flight, a cluster of Rhododendron flowers, a white wildflower, a Jack in the Pulpit flower, and a ball of Dandelion seeds. I ended the day taking some pictures of the Waxing Gibbous (nearly full) Moon. All but the chipping sparrow image were taken using a Fuji 100-400 mm OIS lens. I am really liking this lens as an alternative for the Fuji X series cameras to the Nikon 80-400 mm VRII lens. The Fuji 100-400 mm lens is about the same size as the Nikon 80-400 mm lens but lighter. Also, since the crop sensor on the Fuji X cameras is 1.5x smaller than a full frame 35 mm camera — the field of view for the Fuji 100-400 mm lens is equivalent to a 150-600 mm lens.

A rabbit washing its face, and Jack in the Pulpit flowers. Once I found out what the Jack in the Pulpit flowers were I started finding them in many places in my backyard. It appears that they go from all green to having a dark red coloration as they get older.

Jack-in-the-Pulpit (Arisaema triphyllum). Thanks to Mary Sperley for help with the identification. I remember seeing them when growing up in the woods in Minnesota. I didn’t know that I have them in my backyard — and that they are native wildflowers that apparently the deer don’t eat.
