I framed these 3 for a show put on by Sierra Photo NYC that has been canceled.
The first set is from the Ravine and Butterfly Gardens in Central Park (map). A few of these gave me a bit of trouble to identify.
The second set of flowers are in the Conservatory Garden. I am stuck on the last two. Does anyone know what they are called?
A friend, Fritz, from the Butterfly Club in NYC helped me identify the red daisy like flower. It is Great Masterwort (Astrantia major ‘Rubra’).
My first trip to Central Park this Spring was this morning. We saw warblers and other migrants.
I attended a field trip for winter birds led by Richard Z. for The Linnaean Society of New York on Saturday. The write-up for the trip is on the LSNY site that I manage and designed for the organization.
I had fun embellishing these images.
Two rarities were a partially leucistic Grackle and a young Red-headed Woodpecker.
I made these photographs during a trip with Sierra Photo NYC in January.
