We drove through the refuge this morning, not expecting to get any great photos. The tide was not very low and the sky was overcast. The no-see-ums were so extreme that we could see swarms of them getting back into the car with us! Needless to say, we didn't stand in one place very long! Afterwards, we stopped at our favorite spot on the beach. The no-see-ums found us there, too!
And then a quick stop by the beach! Quick, because the no-see-ums ran us off!
How cool is this VW van, complete with a skate board and the old hard-side luggage on top! It was in pristine condition.
I took the next couple of photos of the male osprey a couple of days ago on a much clearer day!
