With the usual help from Jim Botta, we have put together some of the best photos from the Long Island Wildlife Photography group this week.  September is off to a great start with a great collection of Eagles, Osprey, Hummingbirds, Warblers, Shorebirds and Whales offshore.

This week’s cover goes to Asia Lee with a mesmerizing photo of Black Skimmers in flight around the Sun.  If you have a few minutes, try to check out all 9 pages and enjoy the rest of the long weekend!
