Gov Island Wildlife

A small assortment of wildlife on Governors Island. Do you see the spider? I didn’t see it until I opened the image at home. Bugguide.net helped me with some of the identifications.

Richmondtown Insects

It was a grand day for insects at Staten Island.

Young Wet Robin

I photographed this young bird in Central Park yesterday. Many birds were taking baths in the Loch. I’ve read they don’t do bathe to cool off, but it looked like that to me—it was a hot day.

Koi Tales

When I photographed three Koi swimming in a small pond at the Planting Fields Arboretum yesterday I envisioned making this composite of swirling tails. This is four photographs rearranged. It is digital art.
