Photos from the Savannah National Wildlife Refuge; 1 February 2017

Archives

On Wednesday, I took a late afternoon trip over the Savannah National Wildlife Refuge while I was home in Savannah. The weather was wonderful and it turned out to be terrific visit! The highlight of the visit was watching two Otters wrestle in one of the ponds across from the refuge’s diversion canal. It was blast listening to the chatter away and tussle around! I had seen Otters at zoos and aquariums before but Wednesday was the first time I’d ever seen them in the wild and it made the visit more than worth the drive over!
