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.
