Butt’s Up

What’s up? Canada Geese dunking for bits at the bottom in Central Park October 28, 2018. They looked as if they were being pulled under with their feet kicking the air.

 

Snipe

On October 14, 2018 we were lucky enough to see a Wilsons Snipe at the south end of the Great Lawn in Central Park. I am happy I had the oportunity to see it and take a few bad photographs.

Black & White Birds – CB&W

There are only a few of my bird photographs that translate well into black and white with some work in Photoshop. This group will be included in the Linnaean Society of New York‘s 2018-2019 Program which I am putting together now for September. I create their website and printed program in B&W — layout not content.
