B and H Optic All Stars

These are the ones I picked to submit for 6 topics to submit for the Optic Challenge. I don’t expect to win. I enjoy seeing what other people photograph. the event is freed and a lot of fun. There are lectures and prizes. You can sign up for the Optic All Stars online event by clicking here. Check it out – you might enjoy it. I always do. In June I won $100 to spend at B&H answering a quiz at the online social during Optic 2020.

Bailey Arboretum

After lunch at Glen Cove by the water we went to Bailey Arboretum, Long Island. A nice little woodsy place with a pond. Not many flowers though.

Greenbrook

Our first outing to Greenbrook Nature Sanctuary, Bergen Co., NJ, in our new VW Jetta “James.”

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.
