I went to count birds last Wednesday night, March 7, 2012 at Lion’s Pond in Colchester, CT. Little did I know that I would get to watch the moonrise as well. As grackles and red-winged blackbirds flew across the sky and a pair of mallards settled onto the pond, the full moon slipped up from behind the tree line and floated into the sky. What a treat!

  1. Stunning photos Kathie what a beautiful moment to witness. I am sorry I haven't been visiting your blog enough of late. I have been following your Mom's saga via your FB page and am so glad to hear that she is doing so well. You must be very relieved :)

  2. Beautiful scenes in these photos.

    Regards and best wishes

  3. Very beautiful photos for SWF!Well done!Have a nice weekend!

  4. Kathie, awesome shots of the moon rising!

  5. Exquisite, Kathie. You have captured the moon in all her glory. Did you get to count those grackles and blackbirds and mallards or did this magnificent moon distract you? It would have distracted me.
