Back to Telephoto

And also back to the same places I went with the wide angle zoom lens. I knew the likelihood of seeing the same animals was low but I still went to the spot where I’d seen the white squirrel. Not there. I kept walking and taking pictures but to be honest, my heart wasn’t really in it. I made it all the way to the carrousel area before something truly sparked my interest. The light. But, ironically enough, in a landscape.

Luckily, my telephoto zoom goes down to a 70mm so I was still able to catch it.

I turned around and the sunlight on the trees caught my eye.

I made my way to the Boathouse hoping that the bird I saw before would be there again. It was! And not only was it there, but there was a second one a little closer to me.

Also a duck.

(You can see that it was still quite dark when I got there.)

That gave me some energy to keep going.

(That’s part of the camperdown elm. A very old tree with its own plaque and everything.)

I got to the lake and decided to go up to the LeFrak Center rooftop garden. It’s a bit of a wild jumble. I couldn’t see any interesting plants but then, I’m no botanist. What I did find is birds, insects, and a turtle…

From there, I made my way back, following the lake toward the Boathouse and then back home. Taking pictures of everything I found on the way.

I was definitely a happy camper when I got home. Even made a detour to get a lot of breakfast items at Simple Loaf Bakehouse. We had enough to take us through lunch…
