May Gallery

May hath 31 frames.

 

Well, I had a tough time digging up 31 images that are postworthy. In fact, the extreme closeup of the goose is a little too close and not sharply focused. Nonetheless, here they are, my 31 entries for May 2018. I frequently visit the Hudson River on lunch break, and a gaggle of double-breasted cormorants came up the river, following the alewife run. (Alewives are small fish, like sardines. There’s a “run” in spring, though I don’t know if they’re heading north to mate or if it’s fingerlings headed south toward the sea.) So the cormorants entertained me, and I shot a LOT of frames trying to catch their treading-water takeoffs and their splashy landings. The Mallard ducks and a lone Canada goose hang out around this fishing hole. The mallard shots brought some welcome surprises between the look of the water and the brilliant colors of the birds. As always, these are “raw” images from the camera, without any post-processing.

May brings the “Garden Party” to Sharon Springs. Mostly farm and garden vendors, but a little of everything. Daughter Kerry’s farm set up for both days and had fine weather, and provided me another photo opportunity (with a couple of my favorite subjects!)

June’s Gallery is bound to step it up a little.  Until then, keep snapping!
