A plug for the Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge   Leave a comment

We’ve made two trips up to the River ‘S’ unit this week and continue to find it a peaceful and relaxing place to visit. The auto tour can provide some excellent photo ops and while watching a big old Great Blue Heron settle down in the sun yesterday we just turned off the car and sat in the quiet of wind, water, and birds. It is just an amazing place to contemplate this creation we have been put in and some of the critters we share it with.

A green heron practicing his karate kicks?

A GBH showing off his mammoth wings.

Reflections on lunch…

Perhaps a family get together?

A leisurely swim in the local pool (which appears to need some attention).

Bring some binoculars and/or a long lens for the camera. I find the sun best in the late afternoon (haven’t made it up there early in the morning yet).
