This photo blog features the seasonal changes in nature observed in my own backyard and a variety of local environments. The Wachusett Meadow Audubon Sanctuary in Princeton, MA is often highlighted as a model for the positive effects a small nature preserve can have on the larger environment and the local community. Local sites of historical, cultural and recreational interest are spotlighted as well. All photographs were taken by me. Thank you so much for visiting.

  2. Beautiful shots Julie! I think you did well to get such good captures of those herons. I find them so shy – the slightest movement and their off!

    1. Thanks, Helene. This particular juvenile heron has been hanging around quite a bit. I hope it will be on its way to warmer climes soon!
