I spotted this Horned Grebe swimming in one of the canals at The Great Dismal Swamp. It didn’t seem to mind me watching it at all. It just swam around, in and out of the shadows and would occasionally dive under water. I was able to get quite a few photos of it but this is one of my favorites.
This tufted titmouse is taking a break between trips to a nearby bird feeder. Titmice are quite gregarious and are often found with chickadees. They are always one of the first birds to notice when my feeders have been refilled.
I followed a small group of whitetail deer from quite a distance when they entered a vineyard. This one seemed almost as curious about me as I was about it. It allowed me to take a few photographs before disappearing deeper into the vineyard.
This Carolina Wren was singing in a tree near the south bank of the James River. It remained perched on the same branch long enough for me to get several shots of it. This was my favorite.
