Photos from the Savannah National Wildlife Refuge; 26 September 2014

Archives

Yesterday was my first day off from work in eight days. I could have spent the day playing radio but instead I decided to visit the Savannah National Wildlife Refuge with my parents and my nephew. It was an overcast day and probably not the best for photography but it still ended up being a very nice visit. It was worth it just to see one the day’s sights: a very young alligator that had taken up a spot on it’s mother’s back!

I have no idea what type of moth this is, but the upper part of it's body was a bluish color.
