Return to Thompson WMA

Yesterday evening I was able to sneak in a stealth trip back to the Blue Ridge Mountains and the G. Richard Thompson Wildlife Management Area after work.  By time I fought my way through the traffic headed west on I-66 I didn't have a ton of time left for photography before sunset, but it was completely worth the drive.  Got a few more images I'm happy with and more importantly spent a beautiful evening surrounded by nature.  The bird activity was incredible once again and I was serenaded at close range by a variety of warblers, thrushes, and other songbirds.  The barred owl called a few times in my vicinity and I saw a red fox on my way out.  I'm so thankful I have the opportunities to visit amazing places like this and the good sense to appreciate them.  Do yourself a favor and get out and surround yourself with nature at least once a week.
