Insects July CP

A short trip to Central Park netted these insects. I spotted these at the south end of the lake where there is a wildflower patch and nature trail. The excellent entomologists at www.bugguide.net helped me identify the Drone Fly. The rest I figured out on my own.

Bank Street Doors

5 Bank Street. Willa Sibert Cather (December 7, 1873 – April 24, 1947) was an American writer who achieved recognition for her novels of frontier life.

Waverly Inn at 16 Bank Street opened in 1920. Lovely ambience but a bit expensive for what you get.

Flowers CP July

Same hot day I photographed the insects in Central Park. There are are quite a few wildflower beds around the park. The Conservatory Garden is good for flowers too. I love the bokeh on the Nikon 105 mm f 1:208 Micro lens. No special effects. OK, so the last one is a tree.

Went to Central Park yesterday. It was hot so I moved slowly. I dusted the small bee-like fly (only 5 mm) with stars, the rest are as photographed.

Anemones on Governors Island

The new Hills on Governors Island are nice and green now and there are wildflower beds here and there. It is so quiet peacful on a weekdays and feels far from the city. We rented a surrey to peddal around the 172-acre island.

Today I had fun working on the flowers I photographed there in Corel Painter 2018.
