Potpourri

The refuge has been at various levels of flooding. Summer arrives with a vengence; it was too hot to use your computer, or then in the midst of the thunderstorms, it was prudent to have your computer shutdown. Life has been hectic and then trying - first unexpected camera failure, then car problems, finally unexpected health issues.

All that is to say, I know that I haven't been to Great Meadows as often as I would like. When I have, I haven't been able to process my photos and get them posted. Here are a few random shots from some of the visits I did make. Hopefully, it will tide you over until my next post.

Computer time is going to be very limited in the next week, but check back. I've got a bunch of nesting bird photos that I've been collecting & will post soon. Some I couldn't post because I was so busy taking the photos, others because I didn't want to bring attention to already risky nests.
