High Line Fall

I think we all love the colors of Autumn. Taken on the High Line Park in New York with my Samsung Note 10+. Marc’s captured (two at the end) his with a Samsung Galaxy 10+. These cell phone cameras keep getting better and better. I shot most of mine in RAW which gives more data in the lights to play with in Lightroom.

Abingdon Rail

Yesterday afternoon on the way home Marc noticed a Tweet announcing a Virginia Rail at Abingdon Square Park, which is a rare occurrence for a very small park. It was a life bird for me. There was about a dozen other birders there, most of whom I know. We had cameras and binoculars, which amused the locals. The Virginia Rail seemed quite comfortable. It was feeding on dozens of worms and dodging around the legs of the people sitting on the benches.

Gov Isl Scenes

There are so many things to do on Governors Island. We rented a surrey and peddled around. I photographed the Commanding Officer’s Quarters and the Fort Jay Theater. We stopped for a picnic. Then climbed the Hills. We ended the day by relaxing in seclusion on the hammocks.

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.
