  • The Leader

    Canada Geese (Branta canadensis) take off from a small pond at dusk with the lead goose flying in front of the formation. The lead goose expends the most energy because it is the first to break up the flow of air that provides additional lift for all of the geese who follow behind the leader. When the lead goose gets tired, it drops out of the front position and moves to the rear of the formation where the resistance is lightest and another goose moves into the leadership position.

  • Start of Fall

    It's the middle of September and when I saw this leaf floating down the waters of the salt marsh, it remindered me that it soon will be fall and the birds will be leaving, marking the end of another salt marsh cycle.

  • Tomato Pi

    "The number π is a mathematical constant that is the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter, and is approximately equal to 3.14159. It has been represented by the Greek letter "π" since the mid-18th century." - from Wikipedia

  • Swaying in the Breeze

    A gentle wind moving a stalk of wetland grass (Common Reed) from side to side.

  • Pattern & Texture

    Dry sea grass present in a salt marsh in the Fall gives a unique pattern and texture.

  • Greater Yellowlegs on Mudflat

    Photographed in a salt marsh on Long Island Sound. The Greater Yellowlegs (Tringa melanoleuca) is larger than Lesser Yellowlegs and has a longer bill grayish at base.

  • Wind-lashed

    It was overcast and windy when I went down to the saltmarsh. Strong gusts of wind made it hard to keep my camera steady. The few birds there were hunkered down below the marsh grass on the mudflats.

  • There is always Hope

    Hope trumps dispair.

  • Marsh Grass in Autumn

    The drab marsh grass of summer turns to brilliant autumn colors.
