Trips Through the Savannah National Wildlife Refuge

January 04, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

In November of 2016, I paid a visit to the Savannah National Wildlife Refuge that is at the border of Georgia and South Carolina. From a photographers perspective, the best part about the park are the roads that meander through the park. I rarely had to get out of my truck to take a picture of the local wildlife. This may seem lazy, but vehicles make for great blinds. Cars don't bother the wildlife, but once you get out they take notice. I spotted snowy egrets, red-winged blackbirds, hawks, alligators, and great blue herons. 

It was overcast when I arrived. After I made my first drive through the park, the clouds started to break up some so I drove through again. After I made the second drive through, it was just about sunset so I decided to make a third drive through the park. Although I didn't see any new wildlife that I don't see on a regular basis along the Gulf Coast, the Spanish moss covered tree tunnels fascinated me and with each trip through there was a different look.
