I’m back in the marshes this week, camera in tow, after a busy Derby hat season.
And today I discovered — so are “The Greats”!!
Somehow, all is right with the world once our great egrets return to Cape Cod.
Do they take your breath away, too?? 😉
‘Til next time!
There’s nothing I love more than ending my day with a trip to Mill Landing, and yesterday’s visit did not disappoint.
The tide was low, and the Snowies were out fishing for their dinner.
Accompanied, of course, by their buddies the Great Egrets whose tall, statuesque white bodies you can spot from a mile away.
There’s nothing quite like seeing a Snowy poised to snatch a fish from the shallows, backlit with the setting sun…
You just never know what you’ll see when you visit the Landing.
Perhaps a tern eyeballing what the willet’s fixing for dinner…
Or a host of daisies catching the last rays of the sun.
Why you might even spot some crazy seagull, buzzing the osprey tower. After all, gulls will be gulls! 😉
It sighed as I turned for home. It had been just the medicine I needed after a hot, hectic day in the studio. A peaceful moment, as always, when I needed it most.
Thanks for visiting with me!
Another busy weekend, but I just had to share my pick this week for Sunday Best.
This Great Egret that suddenly appeared one evening at Mill Landing just as I was about to head for home.
A pair of dogs showed up just as he landed so I only had time to snap a couple of quick photos.
But I think you’ll agree…
This is a most deserving winner of a Sunday Best award!
