This past Wednesday was a play day, of sorts. Well, some business was transacted and friends were visited and reference was gathered and a nice crab cake dinner was enjoyed on the eastern shore of Maryland. My artist friend Paula and I headed across the Bay to deliver some work to our eastern shore gallery and then it was on to a late afternoon visit to the Blackwater Refuge just south of Cambridge, MD. We had not visited the refuge for nearly a year and it was nice to spend the late afternoon, though steamy and 'buggy', watching egrets and herons and other assorted residents of the marsh. We lucked out in seeing a number of osprey, including several families with young, and what good fishermen these birds are! Here are some assorted shots from that afternoon.
