Drawing at Lab of O
A fun day... Here are photos from the Lab of Ornithology in Ithaca, NY and some of the Fingerlake Chapter's members of the Guild of Natural Science Illustrators (GNSI), drawing. During lunch we watched a beautiful (live) red-tailed hawk sitting atop the tallest (dead) tree through an elegant Zeiss optical angled spotting scope (staff member told me they go for around $1500!) The telescopes are stationed strategically in the lobby by the pond, the feeders and other places around the Lab of O. I also stopped in at WildBirds Unlimited (gift shop) and got some Christmas Seed Blend for my backyard visitors.
