While checking out the herring run, (you can read more about the details here), we saw these beautiful birds and other creatures. It’s amazing how you can catch quiet moments and simple, inspiring moments in nature, with these birds, fish, and reptiles carrying on their migrations, feedings, and natural life cycles, not too far from a bustling city like Boston. I’m new to capturing flying and swimming friends. It’s quite challenging. I took a few liberties with some blurred moments, trying to create an abstract feel. Maybe I’m not up for the wildlife challenge-yet! I will be posting some more soon on my revamped Instagram, @loweaperture. More news about that soon.
Have you ever been to the Mystic River Watershed?
We visited the herring run there earlier this month. While observing the comorants feeding and sea gulls circling overhead, we were hoping the herring could make it safely to the other side, continuing on their spring journey.
Watching these diving birds, however, was impressive. It’s amazing how voracious their appetites are. The area is pleasant to visit, and you learn that an important wildlife migration takes place right here in Massachusetts.
You can count herring too, learn more right here.
In the meantime, enjoy the cormorants and sea gulls.
