The Flowers at the Edge of the Wetlands

leave a comment »

These flowers always remind me of something out of Alice in Wonderland (I refer here to Disney’s version). Every time I see them, I wait for them to start moving with human grace, and to start speaking coquettishly.

The Butterfly in the Bronx

with one comment

I heartily recommend spending the extra few dollars to go into the Butterfly Garden at the Bronx Zoo. (If you’re not absolutely terrified of butterflies, that is.) It’s a great opportunity to get up and close with those wily bugs that you may not have in nature. In addition to all the plants specifically planted to attract the butterflies, there are also dishes of pure butterfly delights waiting to lull these living specimens into a doped up sense of security while visitors gape at them. Pick up a map from one of the employees as you go in — there are dozens of species to identify.

An Egret Hunting

leave a comment »

I promise on my next days off I will take photos of something other than egrets or swans. This constant rain has made it difficult to go out and take new photos, so I’ve been forced into a rotation of some of the same locations and shoots that I would normally rotate in over months.

Until it’s sunny, more egrets! (Sorry.)

The Grizzly on the Rock (Redux)

leave a comment »

A spring visit to the grizzlies at the Bronx reveals a grizzly on the same sloping stone as before. This time, of course, the landscape around it has changed a little, but not much else.
