Parker River National Wildlife Refuge, Massachusetts
This photo was taken as I crawled through the cold wet sand of a November low-tide on Plum Island in Massachusetts. The beaches in the southern portion of the Parker River National Wildlife Refuge have a very gradual slope that serves as prime feeding grounds for shorebirds. While the fading light of sunset lit up the sand, I tried to capture feeding shorebirds with their reflections in the small pools left behind by the receding tide.
