Neil, as usual, you've given a detailed and thoughtful reply which I greatly respect. Thank you.

Yes, I certainly intend to go back to the nature preserve and hope to get better pics in future. I hope to be able to capture different bird species during various months of the year and also improve my skill in the process. So it'll be a long term project indeed.

I don't live along a bird migration corridor but am smack in the middle of two: one along the east coast of the US and one along the smoky mountains to my west. The coast is about 4 hrs away and about the same for the mountains. With a young family and as a working couple, time is a premium.
So I'm happy to have found out about this tiny marsh land so close to home.

Joz, thanks for your comments. I'll try to post more as I make more visits.

Regards
Sashi

Sashi,
Wonderful to see this set of which ##3, 5, 7 and 8 are my favourites.
Enjoy your brief outings, and looking forward to seeing more through your eyes and lenses.

Hi Sashi,

Seems a lovely place to visit and so close that you can keep making a trip to see how it changes with the season - something a 'project' perhaps?

Of the series I like #'s 1, 3, 4, 7 and 8 the most as the subjects are both well framed and have a good deal of detail and interest in them.

To answer the questions posed in the captions, I suspect the bird in #4 is actually a Sandhill Crane whilst the butterfly in #8 looks like some derivative of a Swallowtail.

I was particularly taken with #3 though - well seen for what looks like such a small flower and so relevant to the moment; the DoF is just right; sharp details and a very delicately blurred background to go with it. Well seen and very well taken.

Oh - and for #9 I think you have the perfect mode of transport for the current weather!

Thanks for sharing these and best regards, Neil.

Pee Dee is a small wildlife refuge area close to where I live (about an hour away) so I rode out with a buddy of mine a couple of week backs to scout the area and see what I can find. It's a very small swamp and is apparently a resting spot for migrating birds.

It's the wrong time of the year to get bird shots. So I just came back with whatever I could find.

A58+ Tam 150-600 or A99 plus 28-135.

1. Super quick and skittish dragonflies made it difficult to get half decent shots.


2. The small birds are ridiculously skittish and I have a new found respect for togs who get perfect bird shots.


3. Corona virus flower!


4. Some sort of heron? To compound my bad luck I was on the wrong side of the sun.


5. Scarlett tanager, I think.


6. Pine forest.


7. Lilac wildflower.


8. No idea what kind of butterfly.


9. Our ride.


Since it's only an hour I hope to revisit over time and get some better bird shots.


Regards
Sashi
