The charming little Pink Cottage, Greenhouses, and Camellia House at Planting Fields arboretum, Long Island, New York.
I framed these 3 for a show put on by Sierra Photo NYC that has been canceled.
I processed the Allium two ways to show that color creates a mood. I know the Ailanthus is considered to be a weed tree, but I love it. It shades us from the sun in our 3rd floor apartment.
The highlight of the day was the Pileated Woodpecker deep in the woods on the FH trail by Fox Hill. It was very far away. I was lucky to get a blurry couple of photos at 600mm. We saw about 26 species of birds, but not many butterflies. Tiger Swalllowtails, Cabage Whites, Silver-spotted Skipper, and a Mourning Cloak.
The second gallery is landscapes and plants. I would like to know the names of all the insects. I sent some of the pictures to bugguide.net.
Tomorrow I’ll show part two of the trip – Jamaica Bay.
It’s been a cold and rainy week, leaving plenty of time to stay home and take care of business.
I photographed these with my cell phone while at breakfast and during a short walk to a store.
