At the Wildlife Sanctuary Hall's Pond

The other day I made another trip over to the wildlife sanctuary Hall's Pond in Brookline. It is very close to Boston and just a minute from a T-Station. Hall's Pond is an amazing place that provides diverse flora and fauna in the middle of the city. On this summer morning I got up early to visit the pond; Great Blue Heron was in his usual spot, did not see the Black Crowned Night Heron. A Cormorant was on the hunt for its breakfast and red winged blackbirds were singing along.

I walked along the boardwalk enjoying the place all to myself and at one of the overlooks I captured the Heron up close. While strolling along the boardwalk I was able to capture the smirking turtle and got hang up on dragonflies. In all images I used a polarizing filter to saturate colors and eliminate any distracting glare. Lots of fun and good times.
