As I sat at work today pondering the fact that I haven't taken any new photos recently, it struck me that I had an extra hour of sun today. (and have since Sunday, but it was, in fact, sunny today.) And warm! So off I went, after work, to see what I could see with my last precious hour or so of good light. I headed south for about 20 minutes until I ended up near Misquamicut beach in Westerly. I looooved just being outside and soaking up the sunshine and fresh early Spring air. And the birds were out....so many, their songs and chirps all melted together in a cacophonous melody and I wasn't quite sure where to look first...
This chubby American Robin was chirping so loud I had to take his photo. He was totally posing for me, too. It's the same one in both shots. I just love their clownish faces and fat bellies. heh.
These two swans swam and dived around together for a while before swimming off into the sunset.
There were about a thousand red-winged blackbirds. Twittering and chirping and making noises that sounded like songs but not quite. They were in every treetrop as I looked back over the landscape, like little black inkblots sitting on the trees and branches. I caught this one in "mid-sing."
Reflections from an old building in the calm inlets off Misquamicut beach.
I really kind of wanted to jump into the water until I remembered it wasn't going to be nice enough for swimming until mid summer. Whoops!
Objects in mirror may be larger than they appear...um, yes! Gigundo seaside mansions! Drool. :)
The sun went down and the tide went out....
And I thought the moon looked huge in the early dusk sky...and these eight foot- high reeds seemed to be almost touching the moon.
Happy Friday! It is supposed to be beautiful here today, early summer weather...Enjoy!
