Mother's Day

I traveled to my hometown this past weekend for a surprise Mother’s Day visit. Aside from the usual breakfast/lunch thing, I drug my mother out for a walk through the Explore Park off of the Blue Ridge Parkway near Roanoke, Virginia. It must have been a sleepy morning for most of the wildlife as there wasn’t much out. I did get a couple of shots of another Barred Owl. I couldn’t quite tell what it was when I was making it famous, though I had a feeling it was an owl judging by its profile.

We followed up the Explore Park hike with a visit to my sister’s house out in the country. I was able to get a couple of the humming birds that visit her feeder, along with some slightly better shots of a Myrtle Warbler; I guess migration season is a little late for some of these birds due to the relatively cold weather we’ve been having this year.
