Just following up Tim with my photos from the trip. This was the first time I'd ever been there in May so we saw a few different birds and some nice flowers blooming. We also endured 3 days of gale force winds!!!

All pics can be seen here

So do I, Michelle. I miss it ALOT! Haven't been there since March last year. I want to try to make it to the OBLHS event in October, which is in Southport, with a "detour" either up or down the Banks--or maybe both ways!

Michelle ...

Finally having a chance to view your albums, what a wonderful collection they are ... each time I thought I had "the" one ... the next page had "another" one ... I thought the full frontal of the crab ... the sandpiper picking along the waterline ... and the pair of nesting birds in profile were among the best of a really superior group ...

I've missed your work and quite glad you decided to share these with us

Michelle, I went to the site to see them all. They are wonderful, and to repeat Barry's sentiments, I've also missed seeing your work posted here, and glad to see you back.

I don't know what I liked the best...the wildlife, the lights, the OBX scenery. Probably because they all are beautiful and all made me wish to be there.

Thank you for sharing. :D

Thanks everyone for the nice compliments! I still have been doing photography and we have gone to the OBX twice a year for the last 2 yrs but this time was later then planned because we moved the first week in April and that was when we were to go there. I wish we had better weather but glad for what he did have. There werent as many birds as usual I guess because of the storm but then we did see two different birds I'd never seen before there. One was the Cattle Egret and the other was a Black-Bellied Plover.

Very nice, Michelle ... You're lucky to get to go to the Outer Banks several times a year. Some of us don't get there several times in several years, myself included. :cry: Keep up the good work!
