Jamaica Bay

We had a brief but rewarding trip out to Jamaica Bay in Brooklyn, New York on the 15th of August. I added a few new odonates to my life list. I learned the word odonates from my fellow Linnaean NY members. September starts the new Zoom meetings and they are free. You may attend one from anywhere or view a recording of one if the timing isn’t right linnaeannewyork.org. The first one on September 14 will be about Bats.

Chandler and Calverton LI

Yesterday we went to the Chandler Preserve in Mt Sinai, Long Island, New York with the Linnaean Society of NY. After the main field trip was over a few of us went to a field by the Chandler VOR-DME nearby.

Ward Pound Ridge Insects

Our second trip to Ward Pound Ridge was with The Linnaean Society of NY. It was a good trip and even though it was not ide3al weather, cloudy and cool, we saw a number of butterflies. On here – one there. Marc spotted the Checkerspot. The clumsy landing in the series of the black flying soldier beetle amused me. The last photo is by Marc.

This is one of two posts of the Butterfly Field Trip led by Richard Cech on June 12, 2021.

Ward Pound Ridge Insects

We went to Ward Pound Ridge in Westchester County, New York last weekend during a heatwave. Most critters were hiding away form the heat.

Breezy Pt and FBF

In addition to the landscapes I posted yesterday, I felt like taking some closeups and used my macro lens on my Nikon D610.
