Earlier in the month, we drove out to Hammonasset Beach State Park for a little bird watching. I’ve really gotten attached to going to the beach-like areas in Connecticut to compliment my woodland adventures of the Hudson Valley.
We joined another fellow photographer at the park, Stephen Ippolito, for our wildlife adventure. The best moment of the day was a pair of Great Horned Owls hunkered down in the trees. They were hidden incredibly well, so they are the best of photos. Sometimes the moment is more important than the photo though.
We also got to see a lone snow bunting mixed in with a flock of horned larks in the parking lot of the nature center. Out on the ocean was a great mix of waterfowl and even a few loons! Hope you enjoy the latest gallery!
