My first visit to Cunningham Park in Queens

With tremendous thanks to Misha Zitser who accompanied me on this voyage of discovery, and who has been talking to me about this park for a couple of years at least.

I had a great time even though we ran out of usable daylight hours before the end of the visit.

I observed a lot of organisms that were new to me, (about 20 of them) including three new fern species, two new moths, two new frogs, several new fungi and a bunch of new plants.

The observations start here:

And here is the quilt of images from that day:

I also discovered that Oakland Gardens is a very pretty area -- extremely pretty suburbs.

I'm so glad you made it to Misha's biodiversity hotspot!

Thanks Steven. I hope to go again soon. I gather you got to do some mothing there -- we certainly glimpsed a lot of different moths there, although I only photographed two of them.

On my second visit to Cunningham Park on Tuesday July 11th, I observed at least 16 more species that were new-to-me.
