Down a heavily forested road an opening to the Chesapeake Bay emerges. Here as the sun was slowly setting on Havens Beach my companions and I came across the Great Cormorant also known as shags. The golden light made the old pilings glow and the birds majestic.
Cormorants feature quite commonly in heraldry and medieval ornamentation, usually in their “wing-drying” pose, which was seen as representing the Christian cross.
Welcome, I'm an artist/maker that lives on a small flower and chicken farm in Virginia. I’m an introvert that prefers to spend quiet time in nature observing and taking photos and painting scenes from our happy life. On our little farm, we grow flowers from seeds and gather fresh eggs from our sweet chicks. I run a small farm stand and Art Wagon on our property. I also have a mermaid heart that longs to be by the water. Sometimes I share things I cook and make and our trips to the sea. I hope you will say hello. xo Kim
