Jamaica Bay

I went to Jamaica Bay NWR in Brooklyn with two dear friends yesterday. There were quite a few winter ducks. I enjoyed the Brant and Snow Geese. A special one was the Long Tailed Duck at Sheepshead Bay. The best one for me was the Long-tailed Grackle who serenaded us. As part of its song it did a wing slap. I learned something new. It was real treat to get out and bird.

Planting Fields 1

I went with lovely group of Sierra Photo NYC photographers to Planting Fields Arboretum in Long Island, New York on Thursday 3/5/2020 to see the Camellias (tomorrow’s post).

The lizard was a surprise. The warm weather must have drawn it out.

North Central Park

I made these photographs during a trip with Sierra Photo NYC in January.

Gov Island Wildlife

A small assortment of wildlife on Governors Island. Do you see the spider? I didn’t see it until I opened the image at home. Bugguide.net helped me with some of the identifications.

Koi Tales

When I photographed three Koi swimming in a small pond at the Planting Fields Arboretum yesterday I envisioned making this composite of swirling tails. This is four photographs rearranged. It is digital art.
