To wrap up these posts on Morningside Park, let’s take a look at the animals that live in the park. There is always an egret (or some type of heron/loon) at the pond in the park, as well as some stray cats and turtles. As is usual when I am watching birds or animals that can do many things that make an interesting image, I took a TON of pics. Here are some of my favorites.
This is my home and you are a guest in it – so regal.
Looking like a painting.
Momma and baby ducks!
Look at the baby ducks!
Another duck came and stood right next to me while I was shooting. No fear. Like squirrels in Union Square.
Time for a stroll.
Looks a bit nicer in b&w. At least to my tastes.
A new local to lord over the pond.
Bird on a rock.
I am unsure what type of bird this is, but it liked to pose there.
Close up on cleaning time.
Cat on a rock.
Nap time on a rock under the trees.
I kinda love how this one came out.
Walking through the pond.
The black bird takes a swim (only time I caught it surfacing).
Painting edit with the reflection.
Turtles eating the bread kids threw at them.
Why are you throwing Subway bread at us?
Turn in the air.
Coming in for a landing.
Standing in the reeds.
Take off part two.
The cats sit and watch.
The baby ducks return.
Love the light play on the ripples.
Huddled in the reeds and watching.
It sees something.
Time to eat!
If you look closely you can see a small fish in its beak.
Next week: I had to go out to Steiner Studios, so a walk along the outside of the Brooklyn Navy Yard.
