Wildlife At the Sanctuary

Note that I'm neither a zoologist nor a wildlife photographer; I'm merely enthusiastic about all forms of life on my property. Birds have their own page.

Mammals

In addition, I've seen rabbits as well as Eastern Red Bats. Sadly, I found a dead bat, but at least it allowed me to make a positive ID.

Fireflies

Right up there with my all-time favorite photographic subjects, along with sunrises, sunsets and waterfalls, is fireflies. I used to photograph them regularly back in my college days. It was far easier using a film camera: I could leave the shutter open for a half-hour and capture millions of winks. I'm just starting to work in the digital domain, and I have much to learn.
