SI Landscapes 2

The highlight of the day was seeing the harbor seals in the Red bank Reach, Lower Hudson Bay. I enjoyed seeing the ice pattens around the tree trunks.

Landscapes in Staten Island

Photographed during our trip with Linnaean NY. I enhanced the skies on some.

Birds at Staten Island

We went on a winter birding trip with The Linnaean Society of New York – The Linnaean Society of New York ( led by Richard ZainEldeen to several locations on Staten Island, New York. It was a lovely trip and it was so nice seeing many of my birding friends. I wasn’t able to photograph many of the birds. Here are a few of the larger ones that I managed to snap. I replaced the skies on most with one of mine and moved the turkey from the road at Silver Lake’s Park to into a landscape at Wolfe’s Pond.

Richmondtown Insects

It was a grand day for insects at Staten Island.

Historic Richmondtown

We went to see the Civil War re-enactment. It was very small, but fun. I love the history and talking with the interpreters. The buildings are getting very run down. They need more money for upkeep.

We went off for a walk and saw no one. It was wonderful to explore the buildings. It is a very pretty setting and the weather was lovely that day.
