The Brooklyn Botanic Garden’s Cherry Blossom Trees From Above #drone #droneday #CherryBlossoms #Spring
Check out a drone’s eye view of the blooming cherry blossoms. These blossoms usually draw massive crowds but this year we can enjoy them from home. Zen out from Gothamist on YouTube:
The Brooklyn Botanic Garden’s Sakura Matsuri Festival is one of the highlights of our city’s springtime season, and the Garden’s cherry blossoms are at the center of it all. The cherries hit peak just as April turns into May, when — during normal times — thousands of people would swarm the Cherry Esplanade for pictures beneath the twin rows of towering pink trees. Alas, these times are anything but normal, and the BBG has been shut to visitors since March.
Welcome to drone day on the Adafruit blog. Every Monday we deliver the latest news, products and more from the Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV), quadcopter and drone communities. Drones can be used for video & photography (dronies), civil applications, policing, farming, firefighting, military and non-military security work, such as surveillance of pipelines. Previous posts can be found via the #drone tag and our drone / UAV categories.
