This week we are challenged to “notice the structure of everyday things around us and imagine the biological blueprint that created them.”  


April, 2017

This wetland marsh is re-created every winter and spring in front of The Breakers.  It hosts a diverse population of migrating (and resident) birds.

As the rains decrease and days grow longer in summer, the wetland recedes  transforming to meadow and dune.

    Wetlands are wonder-full places. Lindy, I enjoyed seeing how your photos show the transformation of this seasonal wetland. Mother Nature sure knows how to create efficient structures!

        Sorry for taking so long to get back to you Lindy, I’ve started a photography course, and everything has been a wee bit hectic over the last two or three weeks.
        And you’re most welcome, and I agree, nature is amazing, it’s very easy to get hooked 🙂
