Not So Bright but Early

After Saturday's successful visit to Spring Valley Wildlife Area, I decided to head out for a pre-work photo shoot. Lighting was a challenge, as there was heavy cloud coverage - with the sun poking out for just a minute. First for me was the opportunity to photograph a pair of Palm Warblers.

And a quick lunch time visit to Hills and Dales Park in Oakwood, Ohio.
