Nikkor P C 105mm f/2.5, Nikon...


Mesic Maple-Ash-Hickory-Oak Forest -- Thin glacial till soils over calcium-rich limestone and marble on this west-facing slope support a productive forest dominated by sugar maple, red oak, and white ash. Shagbark hickory and hophornbeam are also common. If allowed to mature for a few decades, this could become important habitat for the federally endangered Indiana bat, whose second largest breeding colony in the country is 3 km from here. Indiana bats spend daytime in summer under tree bark, favoring large live shagbark hickory trees or large dead standing trees of other species with detaching bark.

Some technical information is in a comment.

Shutter speed was altered between 0.25 (top 4 rows) and 0.33 (bottom 2 rows) seconds. Two second shutter delay was initiated by wireless remote. Field of view set to 9.8 degrees. Exposure, vibrance, and saturation of photos were adjusted in Lightroom before outputting jpegs for stitching.
