Jamaica Bay; the birds and the butterflies

An early autumn afternoon around the less landscaped and less visited east pond of the Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge.

A young Great Blue Heron let me get very near (about 20′, don’t have a telephoto) and then flashed me…

did a little dance

and ignored the leaping fish at it’s feet

A young Osprey holding on to it’s lunch

Monarch Butterflies enjoying the late blooms

and a Common Buckeye butterfly

Geese and Swans having dinneras the sun sets
