Welcome to a photographic journey through the fields, woods, and marshes of New England

Here I’ll be sharing some photographs I’ve recently taken as well as some of my favorites from my forthcoming book Naturally Curious. I’ll be updating my blog periodically with new images, new stories, and more glimpses of New England in all seasons.

WOOD  DUCKS  RETURN

Their slim bodies enable them to use old pileated woodpecker holes as nest sites, and their large eyes enable them to maneuver with great skill among tree branches while in flight.
