Evening Walk Photos: Brooklyn Bridge Park and Brooklyn Heights

I took a walk early yesterday (Monday) evening. On my way from the Squibb Park pedestrian bridge on to Pier 1, Brooklyn Bridge Park, I was greeted by this gray catbird (thanks to reader elw_ny and FB friend John Hunt for the species ID).

A little farther along, I found a red saddlebags dragonfly (thanks again to elw_ny for ID) nestled on a twig.

A profusion of black-eyed Susans.

This is a sumac drupe, which is edible and can be used to make a lemonade like drink or tea.

Bateaux New York’s Celestial was passing Pier 1 as I came downhill.

The pond on the landward side of Pier 1.

The sun sets behind lower Manhattan, as seen from the Promenade.

This photo was taken Saturday, but I had to include it. This is the fish pond that reader Andrew Porter told me can now be seen through the fence near the Remsen Street entrance to the Promenade.

    Good seeing you Claude.

    These are quite lovely, Claude. Getting those dragonflies to pose for my camera is always very difficult.

    First time I’ve been able to post in over a week; not sure exactly what I did after being rejected by DISQUS every other time I’ve tried to sign in.
