I was so saddened to hear of the passing of one of my favorite authors, Pat Conroy.  I have been a fan of Pat Conroy since living in Charleston in the late 80s and early 90s.

I remember watching the movie,

Wait for It!

Sometimes, when photographing, you just have to wait…and wait…and wait.  Sometimes you don’t even know what it is you are waiting to take place.  But still, you wait because of the possibility.

What a wonderful trip my friends and I took last weekend to Pocosin Lakes National Wildlife Refuge!  We went hoping to see migrating birds.  We were thrilled to see snow geese, tundra swans, and bears while visiting the refuge.  Geese, swans, and bears…oh my!

The refuge is located near Columbia, NC and Plymouth, NC.  We stayed in Plymouth while visiting the refuge.  Prior to visiting Plymouth, I would recommend researching
