   Gary wrote, "I took photo of a young deer on the morning of Friday, February 5, 2010. There was a second one, but he was camera shy. They were crossing Ferry Road Between the Parkway and Baseline. The deer appeared to be very young, and I would guess that it was not one year old as yet..."

   Gary wrote, "This is an American white water lily (Nymphaea odorata) that I took on Friday,

this lily is that it only flowers from early morning until noon. It really is a beautiful flower."

    Gary McDannell wrote, "Early yesterday morning (Aug. 17, 2009) I was out bird watching, and I decided
to head down West River Parkway to the Eagle Observation Station. I was only on West River about one minute
when I encountered two young red foxes. One of them ran off into the brush when he saw me, but the other
one stayed around long enough to get a couple of pictures of her."

"Storm Waters" - August 2009

Emily Dahlstrom Photos - Click for larger view

   Emily Dahlstrom took these photos at 5 p.m. on Monday, August 10, 2009 from her front yard looking out over the East River. High winds and a hard driving rain hit the Island about 7 p.m. Sunday when a party tent was ripped down and several of the metal poles on the Dahlstrom property were bent. This was nothing compared to the monster floods in and around Silver Creek and Gowanda, NY. "There was a brown stripe of water running down the Niagara on the opposite shore. It was a muddy mix of water from the storm the previous day," Emily said.

"Bugs" - August 2009

Julie Greco Photos - Click for larger view

   Julie Greco took these photos on August 6, 2009 in her yard on West River Road, and her husband, Frank, wrote the following. "Several days ago I noticed something I never saw before. Hundreds of an unknown insect on our White Pine tree in roughly 6-inch circles. Last night on the Animal channel I saw something similar on "Wild Russia" and the narrator said the insects come to mate and usually are all dead in up to 7 days. Today I noticed that my original 8 circles of insects were down to 2 left. They all left about 4 days after first appearing. So I am hoping that they were there to mate only and not to suck the sap and kill the tree."

Frank F. Greco Photo - Click for larger view

   Frank writes, "Over the last several years we on the West River have been losing our
Purple Martins as the population of Sand Flies decreased. This year I haven't even seen one
Purple Martin. Gradually they have been replaced by Barn Swallows, but as before the Barn Swallows'
newborns line up behind my house in the same place as the Purple Martin did and wait to fatten
up so they can fly to South America for the winter in a couple of weeks."
