Time is slipping away faster than the speed of light. Photography was set aside for a while to deal with more pressing matters but I am starting to get back at it. And what a fun start it has been at the Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge. Migratory birds always add a new element to the place and the old standbys are still fun to watch and photograph.

Air traffic is always heavy at the refuge so don’t forget to keep looking up:
So if you get a chance to visit the refuge remember to relax, enjoy the ride, and bring your camera and binoculars. Entrance fees are minimal and they do honor the National Parks Senior Pass.
