Back on Track

Since this past Sunday my focus has been on a very serious situation. I will admit that the issue has been challenging for all. I was afforded a few quiet hours today before returning to assist. I made the best of the time by walking around Sweet Marsh with my camera. As you might expect, with the migration in full effect I was able to shoot plenty of images. Following are some of the many…

For those wondering what all of the noise is about outside – The nightcrawlers are back out again (for the second time this spring). They had been out earlier, then it turned bloody cold, now it warmed up, and our yards are busy with nightcrawler activity. (Yes, I accidentally interrupted some serious nightcrawler romance.) I thought you might want to know! By the way – no ghillie suit was needed to create these images.
