As 2020 continues to play out like a bad horror movie, it is nice to know that the Long Island Wildlife Photography group never disappoints, sharing their amazing photos and knowledge with the rest of us.  This is a tough time for a lot of people and wildlife can provide a healthy escape valve.  I took a little break from social media for most of the week and was cheered up when I saw the photos that Jim Botta sent me for this week’s compilation.  Besides Jim helping pick these photos out, he does an amazing job monitoring the page behind the scenes, and his help is greatly appreciated.   If you aren’t a member feel free to join us we near 17000 members.

This week’s cover goes to Richard DisScalfani and don’t miss the usual great videos from Natalie Ann on the last page.
