Day one at the Animal Aid Society was incredible! My shift didn’t start until 9pm but I arrived an hour early. Fortunately there were other early birds, and I was able to get out and introduce myself to the other volunteers. Patty offered to show me the ropes, and I helped her with her routine. […]

Today I took a trip to the Virginia Living Museum. The visit was just to pass time, but I ended up getting quite a few great shots of the animal exhibits including the otters, coyote, and red wolves… Actually the red wolves were sleeping in the back of their exhibit as usual. I’ve never had […]

My journey began at Sandy Bottom Nature Park where I walked carefully through the park, eyes peeled for anything red amidst the brown and orange of the woodlands. I managed to spot only one cardinal in the almost three hour search! Unfortunately, […]

Sooo it appears that the 757 will be getting more snow. Ugh! Don’t get me wrong, I loved the last two weekends of snowfall but it’s starting to get annoying. I think I’m just worried that the photowalk will be snowed in. I don’t like driving around in the ice and slush so if it […]
