A sunset lit Blue Heron flies over a pair of nests, from March 5, 2017 in Summerfield, NC. The fast moving thin clouds and half moon added a nice touch as herons perched on the tree tops and collected sticks for their nests.
A wild black bear and his reflection. Captured at the Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge. Black bears are one of my favorite native NC species, and these coastal bears are generally larger and plumper than those in our mountains. The bear population at the NC coast is also much larger than at the mountains. I saw 7 bears on this morning, and they all seemed rather preoccupied looking through the soy bean fields.
