After missing over a month of shooting, I headed back to the Preserve to see the changes. The grasses are dead and dying, but there are a number of flowers still blooming. The goldfinches, bluebirds and flycatchers are feasting, but I only saw one raptor in flight. No egrets - only one heron spotted. I was surprised to see the beauty of the curly dock layered with other plants on the dry north pond. At sunrise, the rusty reds are striking.
