This time of year it is hard to know what to expect at Huntley Meadows. But since all will be traveling by car there is no reason not to be prepared for all photo subjects.

There is a fair amount of walking and it can be wet so hiking shoes are helpful.

Tripod and a good assortment of lenses for birds, landscapes and macro can all be used.

Depending on the season there may still be quite a bit of fall color and migratory birds may still be hanging out. Early morning is the best time to see deer, beaver, and the elusive fox and otter.

Sunrise will be at approximately 7:00 a.m. so Stan will be in the parking lot by 6:30 ready to head out. Stragglers can meet us on the boardwalk.

Depending on the light and subject manner we can shoot until late morning and plan for brunch at iHop on Route 1.
