It was a beautiful, sunny, if somewhat cool, day so we decided to visit Theler Wetlands early in the morning instead of going to the YMCA.
The cool, early-morning air revealed some of the hugest spider webs,
and spiders, I’ve ever seen.
The Osprey was trolling up and down the Union River.
I spotted this Virginia Rail right out in the open running up the bank under the first bridge.
It’s the first time I’ve managed to photograph a Virginia Rail at Theler this year. At the very least, it qualified as the “One Good Bird” I needed to make it a successful day, though I’m also quite fond of Osprey.
