Bird Photo Coffee Table Book Series

The title of this book is “Blue Honeycreepers” because of the bright blue coloring in the Red-legged and Yellow-legged Honeycreeper male birds. When I started writing this I was amazed at the lack of information about these really interesting birds. The internet had mostly rewritten information from the Honeycreeper Wikipedia page. So I set out to try and create not just a photo book, but a book that included some facts about the birds and commentary on their behavior.

The photos for this book were taken in a certified bird conservatory which means they might not be behaving the same that they do in the wild, however from what I have been able to learn from the various references I was able to find their behavior is pretty much the same.
I hope you enjoy this book as much as I enjoyed putting it together and as much as Vinny and I enjoyed photographing them.

Take a Walk Around the Cranford Rose Garden at Brooklyn Botanical Garden in NYC

Here is a short video by Vinny O’Hare as he walked around the Cranford Rose Garden in the heart of Brooklyn. New York City is actually the home to several beautiful gardens and parks, one in each borough. The Brooklyn Botanical Garden gets visitors from around the world, and this video shows why.

To see more photos and art of roses from not only the Brooklyn Botanical Garden but some others, visit our site dedicated to Roses and Lilacs.

In above the roses, the garden had a very big visitor, a Red-tailed Hawk! Here is another short video of the hawk flying over the garden:
