Today at the TCAAP WVA, I saw Bugs and Fire

After pretty much three straight days of rain, I finally saw the sun at the TCAAP Wildlife Viewing Area. I had to wait until just before sunset, around 9pm.

The sun exploded with color and painted all the clouds for about 15 minutes. (All those little specs in this shot are bugs.)

I spent a whole lot of time watching the tree swallows feed their young. The adults brought many dragonflies to them. It was kind of comical though. It takes a lot of work to cram a big dragon fly into a waiting swallow's mouth. Didn't get any descent photos. Too dark for a good fast shutter speed.

I also saw: a deer, a song sparrow, a chipping sparrow, some black-eyed susans, fleabane and an emerging mullein.
