This past weekend I headed out once again to my favorite wildlife management area and wanted to share the photos with you :)

It was really foggy at sunrise but it made for some beautiful shots…

I met some of my really good photographer friends out at our favorite wildlife management area this past weekend and we had a blast.  Here’s a few of my shots from the meet-up.

And I went out alone the day before the meet up at sunrise and captured these images:

Hope everyone has a GREAT Fourth Of July!!!
