A feral pig hunt was on. It was a warm Saturday morning and the signs said, “Stick to the trails!” I stuck to the trails (and kept a watchful eye for crazy pigs). This was the first day I took out my new camera, the Sony RX10 vi. It’s a lot of camera and more settings than I’ll ever need but I tried a few things on the following photos. The location as the Lewis Lake Environmental Learning Area (LELLA.org). It’s a large nature preserve that is very popular with the locals. It has a forested area, marshes, a river and open fields. The bird species found here is astounding. I will certainly be going back.

The Cottonwood Trail took me to the settler’s cabins.
The second part of the trip was the Bittern Marsh Trail but it was washed out. I had to double back and not make the loop.

Fall foliage – it was such a beautiful hike.

Here is a Carolina Chickadee stopped at 250th of a second.
Look! No wings! 🙂
He was hiding, but I managed to get the focus on him.
