Check out these microscopic photos of sand. There's a beautiful one of the garnet and magnetite sand at Plum Island. Those are the purple and black sands that often form wonderful abstract patterns on the southern end of the beach. Seeing a photo of individual grains of sand adds even more depth and dimension to its beauty.

Your blog is a great resource for shorebird information!

The New England Aquarium has just launched a shorebird blog that will feature video, photos and information from Aquarium biologists about the Aquarium shorebirds exhibit.

We'd love it if the blog was a part of your blogroll:
