About the author jmankowsky

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.

    1. Thanks, Tanja. I think it’s harder to photograph birds at this time of year with the grayer background. This berry bush was at the edge of a wetlands, so I was able to catch the beautiful reed color in back.

    1. Yes, they would. I never thought of that. The background makes it, I think.
