UFC Comes to New York

Lost among all the usless things our impotent Governor and Legislators did this past year, they made it legal for mixed martial arts fights in New York State.  Little did we know, we would get a first hand look at this brutal sport at Jamaica Bay of all places.  Below are the higlights from the Yellowlegs Division.

You talking to me?

Chant it with me, Fight! Fight! Fight! Fight!

Hi-ya!

Going for the Kill...

...Evaded!

In a judges ruling... we have a winner!

A Jamaica Bay Dragon(fly)

Birds weren’t the only interesting things on our most recent visit to Jamaica Bay with Corey of 10,000 Birds.  Danika took these shots of a gorgeous Dragonfly I’ve yet to ID (mostly I’ve been busy and haven’t dug out the field guide yet).  If you can give some hints, I would appreciate it!
