I have heard that with the strange dislocations of Covid-19 more varied birds have been returning to the city. Several weeks ago I caught a bright red cardinal on a walk in Riverside Park and then last week this bluejay.
Both images shot fairly close at 200mm (300mm equivalent).
Again, compression effects from shooting with the tele (200mm)
Storm blew through here for a day and the flowerbed that looked like the below in a recent post now looks like this
I’ve already posted a picture of this flowerbed on 97th street but, passing it again last weekend, I still wanted to try and capture the scope and profusion. While I’ve captured more of the flowers here, it’s actually diminished the impact of the earlier close-up, an object lesson in composition.
