Loeb Boathouse Door

Birders often eat in the cafe section after birding in the Ramble. There is a loose leaf log book there where we may write sightings. Part of the Central Park Bopat House is used for weddings and parties. This is the door to that section.

Flycatcher

This was a surprise — a Yellow-bellied Flycatcher near the Humming Tombstone by Tupelo Meadow, in the Central Park Ramble yesterday. Hope I got the ID correct.

Balclutha – September One Photo Focus

The rigging in Stacy Fischer’s photo of Balclutha, a full-rigged ship built in 1886 now in San Francisco, was quite a challenge to mask so that I could put in a different backgrround.

Created for Stacy Fischer’s  One Photo Focus, September 2016.

I made an animated gif showing 3 versions: The original ship, one with no ice, and then one with ice.

Swallowtail Light Door

The Swallowtail Lighthouse on Grand Manan Island, New Brunswick, Canada photographed in 2012. One viewer asked why is it called Swallowtail. I looked at a map and saw that of Grand Manan; the shape of North Head and Swallowtail point, that the lighthouse is on, resembles the point of a Swallowtail butterflies wing.
