I had some time to visit Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge. I was all set to spend a few hours taking pictures but my card did not cooperate. Barely fifteen minutes in the refuge, the car battery died. I had to wait almost two hours to get the battery replaced. Needless to say, one should always check the car essentials (tools, battery, etc.) before going out on a late autumn day. Only a few pictures came out, but it's still a beautiful place. I need a second go at it. Soon.

Winston, sad to read about your travails with the memory card and the car battery, but from what you've posted it was far from a disastrous outing.
Some lovely images from what is obviously a special place.
Thanks for sharing.

Agree, sorry to hear of the electrical issues however you captured the area well, it's one of my favorite places to visit locally besides Blackwater NWR & Conowingo Dam for the eagles. If one is patient there are a half dozen or so foxes in and abut Bombay Hook NWR.

Thank you for the comments. There was a lady nice enough to stop by and try to give my car a jump start. The car would not turn over. Another guy stopped by and tried to help, but in the end, it was the guy that roadside assistance sent that was able to get things started. I was gratified by the kindness of so many strangers - many of which looked inquiringly to see if I needed help. And while the photographs will have to wait another day, it was a great day after all. To the people who stopped by to help, thank you. For the assistance and for the reminder that there is much to be thankful for.
