Caught In The Rain

I rarely go to the swamp in the rain. My camera is water-resistant, but not water-proof, and in South Carolina rain is often accompanied by lightening. I don’t want to ruin my camera and more so don’t want to get electrocuted.

Sometimes you get a surprise. Fortunately there is a covered area of the walkway along this side of the pond.

There are a few Great Egret juveniles that haven’t fledged yet and this one backed into the boughs for a little protection.

This fellow was more curious.

The juveniles above are the two seen in the middle tree in the wider view below. There are three others visible in the further tree, along with an Anhinga.

We have been blessed with a lot of rain this month and green is the predominant color right now.
