Birds and Critters
Recently, I went hiking with my family at Huntley Meadows. It's a great place to see wildlife near Washington, D.C. However, since we were going in the late morning, I wasn't expecting to see much in the way of wildlife. Most of the animals are active early in the morning or late evening, especially when it's hot out, as it has been lately. So, I left my big telephoto lens at home and brought a small telephoto, just in case.
Sure enough, the clouds came out, the temperature dropped, and the animals came out in play. I was glad to have that smaller telephoto. It would have been nice to bring the bigger lens, but I think some of these turned out great. The first photo (above) is my favorite. The frogs seemed especially plentiful.
The birds were out as well. The first one below (off in the distance) is an egret. The next one is a green heron and the last is a great blue heron.
