nature sanctuary at the massapequa preserve



























last saturday around 6pm I was riding my bike when as I turned a bend in the trail, I suddenly heard what sounded like hundreds of birds all chirping at once, like they were all meeting and greeting for the dinner hour. it was really wild. I stopped here to see if I could get a glimpse of what was making the noise. apparently they were all flitting from tree to tree, but the little noisemakers were too far away for me to get a good picture. so I settled for this.
I love nature, the perfect word for today's letter N. if you'd like to see other representations of the letter N or if you'd like to add your own N representation please visit 'abc wednesday'.

What a gorgeous place! And the colors are fantastic! What a terrific shot you were able to get -- with or without the birds! As Wanda said, maybe next time, but this is perfect as it is! Hope your week is going well, Lily!

Those colors are amazing, simply amazing. Look at that pinky-purply-red ...I'm glad you got to hear the birds, but your photo is perfect in and of itself.

Wow that really is something! If i am a bird or whatever 'something' not a human being, i certainly would love to stay there! As if they also see beauty as we do, i bet they see beauty when food is abundant. haha! I envy your biking grounds.
