Welcome to Jessica Maskiell, our new Contributing Photographer!

This beautiful image of a lotus flower resting in water was captured by photographer Jessica Ramos Maskiell, in the New York Botanical Garden, Bronx, NY.  Established in 1891, it is located on a 250-acre site that contains a landscape with over one million living plants; the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory, a greenhouse containing several habitats; and the LuEsther T. Mertz Library, which contains one of the world’s largest collections of botany-related texts. As of 2016, over a million people visit the New York Botanical Garden annually. The Bronx is also hometown to Jessica Ramos Maskiell.
