In August, I look forward to the appearance of beautiful spider webs in the wildflower fields. Today was a dewy morning with bright sunlight, so they were like jewelry dancing in the light.
I was particularly looking for the Elderberry bushes because Cedar Waxwings like to feed on them.
I ran off a LOT of shots to finally catch one with a berry in its beak. After three trips to feed, the flock settled down and the action was over. So, I went over to check some marsh areas. Not a colorful bird, but I find the Double-crested Cormorants to often be a stately presence as they dry their wings in the sun.
I finished off the day with a sandpiper, likely a Lesser Yellowlegs.
