A Coupla Monday Mysteries Answered

DSCN9324-003On Monday I posted this photo from Bear Mountain State Park  last month and asked who it was.

Congrats to Tom Mitchell and Janet Terchek for correctly IDing this Red Eft.

DSCN9422A week earlier, I asked what was going on in the photo above. The answer: Eight Mallard ducklings tare staying warm and cuddling against a feather duster at the Franklin Lakes Animal Hospital. They had been rescued from a storm drain and were awaiting transport (by me) to The Raptor Trust.

Congrats to Marianne H. and Ginny C. for IDing the situation correctly, and a nod to Mike L. for his bad pun.



Photos Needed for 2017 Celery Farm Calendar

Cover 2(2)Carol Flanagan writes:

Production of the 2017 Celery Farm calendar has begun. This is an annual fund-raiser for Fyke.
The fantastic photos bring beauty to your home or office all year, and to friends and family who receive this wonderful calendar as a gift from you!

Photos taken at the Celery Farm by Fyke members are being accepted now. There is a limit of 10 photos per person. The high-res images should be landscape format. 
Non-cropped photos work best with the software used for the calendar, which is typically in a 10-inch by 12-inch size range.
Please send your photos to carolflana (AT) aol.com by July 15. (An earlier deadline this year.)
