Moon Sets over Herring Gull at Wychmere – Day 25

Well, it looked like I wasn’t the ONLY one who saw the moonrise this morning at Wychmere.


I pulled in, hoping to spot an Eider if I was lucky, or maybe a Red-breasted Merganzer who’d made it thru’ the wind storm overnight.

But I got even luckier when I saw this beautiful Herring Gull, standing at her post as the moon set just overhead.


Such a gorgeous moon it was, waning from the full Wolf Moon this past week that was too overcast for us all to see.


And this gull seemed to be taking in the full beauty of the moment.


Perhaps pondering the day that lay before her…


And feeling a certain sense of hopefulness and calm

As she sallied forth, with the moon on her shoulder.  😉
