Happy Monday! I want to continue with images from Saturday’s Green Island shoot. The image above, for those who have never been there, will give you an idea of what the Green Island Wetlands are like.
There was way more water at the Wildlife Reserve than the two previous times I’ve been there. There was water everywhere. We were all amazed at the river level in Bellevue and all the way down to Green Island. Water was in places it normally isn’t.
There are gravel roads (4 I believe) that run through the Reserve. Usually with water streams on either side. In the image above Jeanne and Becki explore the wetlands. I remind you that it was 49 degrees and some wind with no sun so it was not a very comfortable day.
Okay enough about the layout of Green Island Wetlands. The image above is of a Great Egret. (I found that out by myself thank you.) There were three of them together and when I got out of the car to take some images they all took off. I hoped I had some great flying Egrets images, but all I got was 3 flying white blurs.
Even with their white bodies it was hard to pick them out from the background. They were pretty far away and with the overcast skies and featureless grass behind them they tended to blend right in.
So that’s it for today. Thanks as always for stopping by. Tomorrow more images of the wildlife at Green Island. Be careful.
