May for Birds

Fresh Pond, Cambridge, Massachusetts

... puddles are welcomed after freshly rainfall...

Goldfinch: ... welcomed after freshly rainfall...

Goldfinch: ... aquarelle flashes...

Goldfinch: ... stops...

Goldfinch: ... swirls...

Goldfinch: ... and the moments of perfect repose...

... and Life Goes On...

Fresh Pond, Cambridge, Massachusetts

Peaceful morning on closed golf course...
   Canada Geese with their young in slow motion... feels like the safest place,
      so distant from COVID-19... 

 ... nature in her own unspoiled rhythm...

Canada Geese: ... in slow motion...

Canada Geese: ... on this peaceful morning...

Canada Geese: ... feels like the safest place...

Canada Geese: ... quietly in tandem...

Canada Geese: ... so distant from COVID-19...

Canada Geese: ... nature in her unspoiled rhythm...

Through the Window

Cambridge, Massachusetts

Flowering right in front of my window...

I have known this Crabapple for many years, back when she was a little tree.
She has grown over the years, and then out-grown her own capacity to live healthy among all her neighbors who have brought an extra shade into this corner of the yard. Two years ago, it came down to life or death and we, humans, chose life - the therapy to help bring her health back...

   ... I look at her young leaves and flowers... exchanging smiles through the window...

Crabapple: ... flowering...

Crabapple: ... right in front of my window...

Crabapple: ... her young leaves...

Crabapple: ... and flowers...

Crabapple: ... exchanging smiles through the window...

Keeping Distance

Fresh Pond, Cambridge, Massachusetts

Mockingbird likes to stand on tops of electric poles or high-up on chimneys.
Inspired by the sounds of cars and trucks, she creates her own melodies,
   and in her strong voice sends the message:
      I am here as well and I can out-voice you... just keep listening and remain at distance...

Mockingbird: ... immersed...

Mockingbird: ...

Mockingbird: ... hm... who are you?... definitely not trustworthy...
Mockingbird: ... moving...

Mockingbird: ... to the higher grounds...

Is It Spring?

Fresh Pond, Cambridge, Massachusetts

COVID-19 stay-at-home... the spring is sneaking through the windows...
   Morning songs urge trees to wake-up. And the trees I can see are cautious as if still not convinced...
   ... all is so close and, at the same time, distant...

   I feel the need for a place where I can touch the spring... 

Fresh Pond: ... spring colors...

Fresh Pond: ... down at the base...

Fresh Pond: ... capturing...

Fresh Pond: ... spreading...

Fresh Pond: ... vivaciously...

Fresh Pond: ... attracting...

Fresh Pond: ... gracefully...

Fresh Pond: ... touching...

Fresh Pond: ... with her gaze...

Fresh Pond: ... at the family...

Fresh Pond: ... and the spring...

Each Other

Harold Parker State Forest, Massachusetts

... the pond and trees immersed in reflections... making each other alive...

Harold Parker: ... the pond and trees...

Harold Parker: ... immersed in reflections...

Harold Parker: ...

Harold Parker: ...

Harold Parker: ... making each other alive...

Master at Work

Breakheart Reservation, Massachusetts

... following the pathway... Pjer has disappeared...

Breakheart: ... following the pathway...

Breakheart: ... Pjer has disappeared...

Breakheart: ... in the moment...
