Photographer's Note

There is a lovely spot in Central Park called Conservatory Water, aka the Model Boat Pond. It is an ornamental pond, fashioned after the model boat ponds of Paris, where you can rent battery-powered model boats or bring your own.

When I leaned over the edge of the pond I caught a glimpse of the buildings on Fifth Avenue. It is on the high ledge of one of the buildings in my photo where two very famous park visitors reside: Pale Male and Lola, a pair of red-tailed hawks. People come to this spot with binoculars to see the hawks, and sometimes their chicks. I was able to hear them calling out, but didn't actually see them while I was there.

There are so many gems to discover in Central Park, and, after many visits, I still find something new every time.
