River Dawn

The light and moisture on the Connecticut River at dawn  shift quickly.  As the sky lightened  a stream of  fog became visible rising out of a field onto the river.

Spider webs and wild flowers in the field  gave an artsy display.

Fog swirled around on the river even after the sun rose.

Pulled down by the weight of the moisture, grasses dipped and bobbed.

Birds were busy catching their first meal of the day.

Meadow Walk

A Bluebird invited us to “come on in” as he flitted off into the meadow at the entrance to the Audubon Center at Bent of the River in Southbury.

Butterflies proved elusive  as they examined the blooming milkweed, with seemingly random flight patterns.

We were last here in March when there was a foot of snow on the ground. On Sunday the meadow was overrun with flowers reaching for the sun.
