|Sunrise at Middle Creel Lake|
With the end of that trip my attention shifted to wildlife closer to home, which mostly involved keeping a close eye on the local deer herd, but I took a break from this for several days when I visited Middle Creek Wildlife Management Area from the afternoon of Saturday, October 10 until late morning on the 14th. for several days of filming and photographing the waterfowl and other wildlife that may be found there.
A favorite way to start a day at Middle Creek is to photograph the sunrise from the area where Hopeland Road passes close to the lake. The sunrise was especially fiery and vivid on the last day of the trip, which is the one featured at the beginning of the post, while the one on Monday was not as vivid due to a heavy fog, but was just as dramatic in its' own way, if not more so.

A modest flock of them could be seen most mornings and evenings where Hopeland Road passes along the lake.

Great Blue Herons were seen in this area, as well as a few Great Egrets.

The pothole across Hopeland Road from the lake is also an excellent spot and it was here that I got a few photos of the Great Egrets and of Canada Geese landing.
