Early morning blues, Piping plover on Plum Island

Photograph of a piping plover fledgling at Sandy Point State Reservation

Nothing much to be blue about on this morning (or any morning when you're out to do some photography at sunrise!) unless you're the morning light reflecting off the water in the background. I took this photograph on a mid-July trip to Sandy Point State Reservation on Plum Island, and I suspect that this is a fledgling from one of the piping plover clutches I saw as tiny chicks in early June.

  1. So sweet.... Definitely nothing to be blue about! And def worth getting up early to see.

    1. Thanks, Sallie! Always worth an early morning wakeup if you have a chance to see shorebirds!

  2. So precious! It makes me want to scoop up the bird and give it a hug. :) You have a great talent in photography. :)

    1. Thanks, Kenneth! Some low-level clouds helped to soften the sunrise light nicely this day.
