~NY views~

Sunday, October 8th, 2017

Brooklyn Bridge, view of my first NY apartment, 2000, tucked in that top corner. Not zoned for living, it had a hot plate, shared bath, no air conditioning, and a city of pigeons living in the stairwell. It also had the very same view as the vintage accordion postcard I’d hung over my desk in […]

~meadow massacre~

Tuesday, September 5th, 2017

Sunrise (above), pre meadow razing. The turkey gang and I wander bewilderedly, surveying the damage. Marbled Orb Weaver on the last twig standing. See if you can find the frog in the meadow debris below. Parting gift from my turkey buddies: sixteen inch quill. Antler, also found today, is just shy of six.

A new buddy from the lacewing family, I believe a Dendroleon pantherinus, or Antlion.
