In My Happy Place
(Click any photo to enlarge; hover mouse over photo for caption.)
I love driving through wildlife refuges. I don't care where they are: Delaware, Maryland, Florida, Pennsylvania, Virginia. As long as there are birds to see and photograph, I am happy.
My favorites in the Mid-Atlantic region are Blackwater near Cambridge, MD, Bombay Hook near Dover, DE, and Chincoteague in Virginia. I've only been to Merritt Island in Florida, but I loved it there and will return this winter.
I spent yesterday afternoon and this morning at Bombay Hook. There were even some snow geese there. Here are this morning's photos. I'll post yesterday's in a separate blog entry with some tips for photographing birds in refuges.

Although most of those birds are, common on the East Coast I never tire of seeing them they are just beautiful.
