Planting Fields in Long Island is just one a a bunch of botanical gardens and arboreta in a small area. They are ridiculously amazing. Most have buildings that rival the gardens. This trip was a little dreary but you make the most of what you have right? I only had my long lens because I had been looking for birds. I had to get on the far side of the lawn to get just this. The weather shut out the birds so it was an fun challenge to see what I could do with a long lens in a tightly laid out, intimate garden.
