No Stand Outs on a Cool Morning, 08-14-18

Much, much cooler today than it has been in WEEKS, in the high 80’s. It was soooo nice.  I went out to the Effie Yeaw Nature Preserve, but the cooler temperatures must have told all of the critters to sleep in, because it was hard to find anything – except for wasp galls. It also seemed like the animals I DID see kept their distance from the trails, which also made photography difficult.

But at the very end of my walk, I came across a mother deer and her fawn, and was able to get some good shots of them.

Persist and you shall find.

I walked for about 3 hours and then went back home.
