    Some pics from the Wetlands after the rain stopped late last week. Roads were closed at Wetlands so I drove down the Dirt rd. to Moccasin Island. Clouds, mist and very windy!!!

    Walked into the Wetlands and the Caracara landed 10 feet in front of me on the road.

    Great shots.

    I'd love to see the rest of the series with the catfish. Did you happen to get it swallowing that big thing!?

    Unfortunately no.........I was on the dirt road going to Moccasin Island and you can't stop your car on the road. I did anyway when i saw the GBH come out of the dike with that fish. Next thing I new I had a Wildlife Officer pull behind me in his truck and told me to move on. Lucky for me I got those shots. He was not friendly as we have hunters in the Area that are trespassing on private property.

    Ok so I'm super jealous... I was at moccasin Island Wednesday.. and what do I have pictures of... COWS... and a meadowlark that isn't nearly as interesting of a capture as yours. Are these taken in the preserve or along the roads you take to get there? There actually were a lot more birds along the road when I went, but since I had never been before I passed them by ( :x ) to see what awaited me in the preserve.
