My apologies for having disappeared for a few days. It has been a very busy week. So to relax I went for a walk this morning at the Assabet River National Wildlife Refuge. The geese are in a hissy mood as you pass them The orchids are drying up now. The ferns are abundant, and I came across a large number of insect egg pods. On a mini-scale it is Invasion of the “Body Snatchers,” “Aliens,” or worse. At one point in front of one of the bunkers I came upon a literal swarm of colorful dragonflies.
The marsh is, as always, stunning and this morning I used my IPhone the capture the dead tries on the marsh against a cloudy bu azure sky. I decided that this was best done in a photopictorialist style (Figure 1) – filled with noise to mimic a painting and the bromoils of a bygone age a century ago.
