Ongoing projects

Cliche, but…..

I know the world doesn’t really need more rainbow pictures, but I couldn’t resist. This one actually spanned the entire sky, so that you could see each end touch the horizon. I’d never seen that before, usually one end just fades away.


Cameo Hills Farm, Montgomery, NY.

This is a standardbred farm that has bred and raised some amazing horses, including Deweycheatumnhowe.

Miscellaneous wildlife from the garden

This snake surprised me, at first I thought it was a branch stuck in my boxwood, but no….. It stayed quite still while I tried to find a decent angle. I wish I could have gotten closer.

This is a Northern Harrier, not a Redtail. The field marking is a white patch at the base of its tail, that is easily visible when it flys away from you. It had some very successful hunting in our fields after we mowed, spending the better part of the day for about a week. It was very blaise about our presence and several times flew low and slow enough for Havoc to give chase.

A fuzzy picture of one of our House Wrens. The first nest of the season was in the upper skull (we watched six fledglings leave the nest) and the later nest was in this skull. I don’t know how many fledged from this attempt, they did so in private.

Street Art, Kingston, NY

Two of the newer wall murals on Broadway…

As usual I don’t have any information about the artists…..but Kingston has a surprising number of murals, many of which are part of the O+ festival…..so maybe there is a new project in my future…documenting Kingston’s street art…..
