I got to the reserve just as the sun was coming up over the trees.
The spider webs still had dew on them.
Dew drops were everywhere. There was a chill in the air (meaning 72 degrees).
The black bellied whistling ducks and moorhens were sleeping in.
Even the great blue heron was still sleeping as the sun hit his eyes.
I like the light early in the morning because you can see where all the webs are.
Out on Lake Hancock, I saw this line of cormorants. Why are they so close together in this straight line? They have the whole lake to swim around in. Safety in numbers?
After a while, they all started taking off.
Alone with his reflection.
Grass in the lake.

Sleeping close to the trail.
Finally, the weather is starting to break. Soon everywhere will be posting their snow pictures and I will be happy it’s under 80 degrees. It was 72 degrees when I got to Circle B Bar Reserve early in late October. By 11am it was 85 degrees. It was still a perfect morning and I saw a brand new bird to add to my list. More on that later.
