A composite of butterflies photographed in the Butterfly Meadow, Central Park, and edited in Corel Painter and Photoshop.
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.
This fountain honors children’s book author Frances Eliza Hodgson Burnett (1849-1924). The Conservatory Garden, which reopened to the public in 1937, was chosen as the perfect site for this memorial erected by Friends of Burnett. The reclining boy playing the flute and a young girl holding the bowl may represent Mary and Dickon, the main characters in The Secret Garden. The bowl is a functioning birdbath where small birds drink.
