In My Happy Place

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.
