Earlier This Morning

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.

One thought on “Earlier This Morning”

  1. Great photos! You remind me that the only time we ever saw a Virginia Rail was up in Port Townsend. I think I tried to photograph it, but it was very shy.
