This week’s best of Long Island Wildlife may be a day late but the images are on point.  This group of photographers continue to amaze me day in and day out with with spectacular images.

What you see below is just a small taste of what they are finding and just about each week I see a new bird or creature I have never seen.

The highlight this week has to be the Least and Common Terns tending to their young with the cover photo going to Steven Williams.
