Our end of March hike went very well. We saw an incredible number of Spring wildflowers, a Carolina Wren sat very still singing for several minutes in full view right off the parking lot, and a deer walking straight across ahead of us near the bird blind.
Wrens tend to hide more, though their singing carries far, so the fact we all managed several shots of this one definitely set a good tone to the hike.
This wild iris makes me reach for my camera every spring. This time I caught a good shot in good light with an insect along for the ride.
Our second spring hike takes place April 27 at Brooker Creek Preserve, 8:30 in the morning. Meet in the lobby of the education center and we will set out from there.
