This plant outlined it’s parts in red.
Photographed by the lake in Central Park on July 26, 2017.
A short trip to Central Park netted these insects. I spotted these at the south end of the lake where there is a wildflower patch and nature trail. The excellent entomologists at www.bugguide.net helped me identify the Drone Fly. The rest I figured out on my own.
I made a frind a birthday image and thought it was nice enough to post.
Same hot day I photographed the insects in Central Park. There are are quite a few wildflower beds around the park. The Conservatory Garden is good for flowers too. I love the bokeh on the Nikon 105 mm f 1:208 Micro lens. No special effects. OK, so the last one is a tree.
Went to Central Park yesterday. It was hot so I moved slowly. I dusted the small bee-like fly (only 5 mm) with stars, the rest are as photographed.
The new Hills on Governors Island are nice and green now and there are wildflower beds here and there. It is so quiet peacful on a weekdays and feels far from the city. We rented a surrey to peddal around the 172-acre island.
Today I had fun working on the flowers I photographed there in Corel Painter 2018.
I bought two new houseplants.
Flowers at the New York Botanical Gardens, Bornx NY. The last two I added background shade.
Haven’t been out much, so I photographed a couple of our house plants with my macro lens.
