I am feeling a little better, so I am once more photographing the Big Apple so I can share the images with you. It has been raining a lot in June — it’s been one of the coldest and wettest Junes on record — so the flowers have lots of raindrops on them, and a lot of insects huddled between their petals, too. Unfortunately, the wind is quite strong, so this group of images isn’t as good as I thought they’d be, but I plan to get out there to get more for you.
