Tubby Cove Boardwalk Sightings

.

What a welcoming sight to see as I got out of my car to walk down the Tubby Cove Boardwalk at Eastern Neck NWR.

Bald Eagle

I watched the eagle for a couple minutes as it soared, getting further and further away.  Beautiful!

The short marsh boardwalk ends in a clump of trees, where I found several curious Yellow-rumped Warblers.  I lucked out with one shot in the thick brush they were hiding in.

Just pass them, I entered the duck blind and peeked out of one of the holes.  Hmmmm….no birds or ducks.

I glanced around inside the duck blind, and….whoa….backed out quickly when I saw this active wasp nest above me in the ceiling corner.

Once outside, I was able to take a shot.

And then I quickly left!  😉

  1. Do you want a good advise? “Photograph the birds and stay away from insects, especially if they fly and are in a hive”. — Nikon fortune cookie. 🙂

  2. You got lucky with the first two shots – and even luckier (ha!) that you got out safely before the wasps discovered you.

  3. Nice day out! Nice image of that wasp nest and their so precise work. We recently had a few wasps try to take up residence over our front door—they are very persistent!

  4. Your eagle looks magnificent against the blue sky Donna ! As for the wasps they often inhabit such places and send us packing when we discover their nest. I had a nest at the door of a garden shed when I lived in my acreage years ago, and got bitten on the ear, as I could not wee the nest as I entered, not nice. 🙂

  5. 👌👌👌📷🌹I have a wasp’s nest under the roof in the attic … but I have to wait until it’s colder 😁
