Early Autumn at Brooklyn Bridge Park

A monarch butterfly, on its annual migration to Mexico, pauses on Pier 1.

More photos and text after the jump.

Max Pelzmann’s Canopy, formerly white, became bright red just before the DUMBO Arts Festival. You can find it near the park entrance at the foot of Main Street.

The East Tower of the Brooklyn Bridge from a new perspective, the lawn just south of Jane’s Carousel.

Has this been contributing to my wife’s and daughter’s sneezing? Goldenrod on Pier 1.

At least it’s keeping the bees busy making late-season honey.

A profusion of fall flowers on the landward side of Pier 1.

The schooner Clipper City heading out on a tourist cruise from the Seaport Museum, as seen from the pedestrian path near the south end of Pier 1.

Showy blossoms and berries, landward side of Pier 6.

    Nice pictures, Claude. I agree, the butterfly shot is very special.

    Very nice pictures, Claude. I am particularly impressed by the picture of the bee on the goldenrod, as my husband used to be a beekeeper.

    He, or one of his/her family stopped by Atlantic Antic and settled on one of the Windsor Terrors’ mics.

    Guess he needed a jolt of rock ‘n’ roll energy for that long flight south.
