Monarch Chrysalis

Monarch Chrysalis

Let’s switch it up! I have been photographing plenty of butterflies on beautiful fall flowers recently, but this unexpected sight came thanks to the eye of Audubon Connecticut at Stratford Point Land Steward Stefan Martin. The Monarch chrysalis seen here was found yesterday despite the late date, and considering our weather conditions and the favorable location it should have enough time to emerge and head south with all the rest.

Monarch on Calico Aster

I apologize in advance, but I have a touch of Monarch madness, and I cannot help but photograph them nonstop right now! This beauty was feeding on calico aster a couple days ago, helping to highlight why all of those aster species are so important to our pollinators so late in the season… Scott Kruitbosch Conservation & Outreach...

Drake Northern Shoveler

Drake Northern Shoveler

I finally had the chance to properly photograph a beautiful drake Northern Shoveler (Anas clypeata) late last winter. This bird was on the way north for the breeding season, stopping off at a warm spot along a river marsh. I post him now because earlier this week a colleague of mine saw a small flock of Northern Shovelers flying by on the way south already! It is hard to believe we are that deep into the season, but the winter waterfowl are on the way. What is your favorite species of duck? Any you can’t wait to add to your life list?

Artist Neil Rizos at RTPI

Neil Rizos was in the Jamestown area for most of the week following the opening of his exhibit, and he spent much of this time at RTPI interacting with visitors, students, and staff. Rizos’ exhibition and the associated programming were made possible through a generous sponsorship from Key Bank. While the artist himself is no longer in our area, Rizos’ spectacular work will remain on view in the RTPI galleries through mid-December. Many of these pieces are available for purchase, and the variety of media represented make for a diverse assortment of choices sure to please any nature-art...
