I captured this beauty in Boca Raton, Florida. I especially like the reflection in the water and how very pleased with itself the bird appears to be.
Thanks Cee for the opportunity to participate. https://ceenphotography.com/2018/06/28/cees-black-white-photo-challenge-birds/
THIS IS OUR BELOVED HADDY AT CHRISTMAS.
In 1838, John Estaugh Hopkins was digging in a marl pit (on a small tributary of the Cooper River in Haddonfield, New Jersey, and part of the Campanian-age Woodbury Formation) when he uncovered large bones, putting them on display at his home, also in Haddonfield. In 1858, these bones sparked the interest of a visitor, William Parker Foulke. The skeleton was dug out from the marl pit in 1858 by Foulke. The excavation site, known as the Hadrosaurus foulkii Leidy site, is now a National Historic Landmark. Foulke contacted paleontologist Joseph Leidy, and together they recovered an almost complete set of limbs, along with a pelvis, several parts of the feet, 28 vertebrae (including 18 from the tail), eight teeth and two small parts of the jaw. Foulke and Leidy studied the fossils together, and in 1858, Leidy formally described and named Hadrosaurus foulkii in honor of his collaborator.[

The High Line is a public park built on a historic freight rail line elevated above the streets on Manhattan’s West Side. It runs from Gansevoort Street in the Meatpacking District to West 34th Street, between 10th and 12th Avenues. If you get a chance walk the High Line. It is a fantastic experience.
My entry for Cee’s Challenge. This photo was taken in Greece. I have never visited any other country that has such spectacular vistas of blue and white.
I am dipping my toes into this world of photography challenges. Here is my entry for Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge for this week. The challenge is a black and white photo of flowers.
