Full Snow Moon, Cape Cod style.
Shared with a Lady Buffle…
Along with a hybrid Buffle x Common Goldeneye, diving for dinner at Rock Harbor after sunset.
And a glorious Snow Moon rising behind a dune at Forest Beach in Chatham.
For me, nothing could’ve been more wonderful. ❤
I’ve always been a sucker for a bird on a wire….
And when it comes to Kingfishers, I always seems to “catch” them on the fly when I am driving.
Fortunately, this Lady was engrossed in her fishing expedition, and so I was able to capture a few stolen moments…
More to come of this Lovely Lady! ❤
This winter, as I waited for the hunting season to end in three months…
I was determined to find “new spaces” where I could keep photographing birds and all things nature…
To find the peace, the peace I stretch out for every day.
And, well, quite by surprise I fell in love with a Bank Street Beach “loop walk” – from Pilgrim Church parking lot, down along the shoreline, up Snow Inn Road to Wychmere harbor, and then back along the main road to the church.
One of my very favorite things about the new “loop” is the “back side”.
There’s a short boardwalk that leads thru’ the dunes, that takes you to Snow Inn Road and then on to Wychmere.
And every time I do the walk I turn right there on the boardwalk, and I look back.
Just to see what the light is doing with the grass and the cedar trees at that moment.
Can you see why I fell in love?? ❤
This Lady Eider was waving “Goodnight” to the sun when I walked past her along the shore tonight at Bank Street.
And in the Beauty of the moment, so was I. ❤
The light was turning pretty crummy this morning, and I almost didn’t go out at all.
I am so glad now that I DID.
Or I would have missed this amazing punk star Red-breasted Merganzer.
Whose DOO more than made up for the crummy light. 😉
It was almost a moment in black and white…
Yet not. ❤ ❤
As I knelt by the fence at Skaket Beach it felt…
I happen to love winter. 😉
