Two Views From The Marsh

We did get out for a walk at the marsh the other day. These two views capture the beauty of the moment for us.




I hope you will click on them to see the full beauty of the moment. Top photo a lovely Great Egret and bottom photo I think are Godwits and their interesting, other-worldly, multi-dimensional reflections. 

I'm still working towards the goal of more than 67 posts this year. So here is Post #56. Wheeee!

  2. I did indeed click on the photos to enjoy their full beauty. They have much in common with the fen and coast around here: Godwits can usually be seen and Great egrets are becoming increasingly common in the last few years.

    1. John-- We often see Great Egrets at the marsh. I think the Godwits might be just passing through on migration south. Always a treat to see them.

    1. Paul-- Thank you for that. Well, the number 67 is the fewest post we've ever done in one year here on the blog. That was in 2012. So, the goal is pass that number by. I'm working on it! (I did a blog post about it here: https://newdharmabums.blogspot.com/2021/09/a-little-goal.html)

  4. I love that second photo. and the first is so serene even though I know that egret is looking for food. not so serene for the fish that gets got but everything has to eat.

  6. Great shots. That Egret looks like he is contemplating world peace but I'm sure it is just supper.
    The Godwits photo would make a mind blowing jigsaw puzzle.

    1. Patti-- I think the same thing about the Egret photo. It does look like a contemplative moment. And yes, I LOVE your idea of that Godwit photo as a jigsaw puzzle. Perfect!

  8. I'm curious about mosquitoes. Do they not flock around the Marsh? I've quit going outside because of the seeming quantity here day and night and I seem have always been a mosquito magnet.

    1. Catalyst-- I haven't noticed many mosquitoes out there, or at least not enough to make us not want to be out there. I'm sorry that you have them there in numbers that make you want to stay inside.
