Isle of Hope and Harris Neck – I had two opportunities to play with photography on Sunday. On Sunday morning, I was on the way to church on Isle of Hope during a beautiful sunrise. It was such a beautiful morning that I stopped on both LaRoche Ave. and on Bluff Drive to take some sunrise photos before I continued on to church. Since I didn’t have a camera with me, these photos were taken with my Samsung Note 4.
On Sunday afternoon, I had to go down to Brunswick for a few hours so I left early and took a short trip through the Harris Neck National Wildlife Refuge. Just as on Saturday’s Savannah National Wildlife Refuge trip, I saw a lot of young Alligators. It was also obvious that even though it isn’t officially Spring, Spring is indeed here. As the wind blew through the pine trees, you could see the pollen come out in yellow clouds. Some of the pollen fell to the surface and collected along the banks of the Refuge’s ponds (I have to admit, I found the pollen around the Coot’s waterline in one of the photos below a bit comic). Another sign of spring is that some of the Wood Storks are returning and beginning to nest in Woody Pond’s trees along with Great Egrets.
