Central Park April Flowers

This is the first in a series of 4 posts of photographs that I made from an afternoon trip with Sierra Photo NYC – New York City Sierra Club Photography Committee.

Green-Wood Nature in April

A few of the birds and plants that we saw in Green-Wood – National Historic Landmark in Brooklyn, NY.

Staten Island Wildlife

The Linnaean NY group saw 62 species of birds. I saw 53 of them. We had a lovely day touring the Conference House Park, Wolfe’s Pond, Blueberry Park (shore only), and Great Kills Park. It wasn’t a great day for me for taking photographs.

NYBG April Flowers 1

Some flowers I knew the names of most but others I could not find. If my friends here at WordPress know the missing name of the one at the end, please let me know. Thank you to those who helped me name these. I love learning what they are.

NYBG Magnolias

Among the first trees to bloom in New York in late March to Early April are the Magnolias. Star Magnolias first. One bud was growing out of the bottom of the tree trunk.

Battery Park Flowers

I planned to meet up with the Sierra Photo NYC group at Battery Park at the tip of Manhattan. I arrived way too early and it was raining. There was no where dry to sit so I decided to leave after taking a few photographs.
