Dragonflies are out. We will have a chance to see what else is out. We may consider visiting the upper section of this area also. You may want a longer lens and a tripod depending on what you find. There should be all types of birds and rabbits out in the early morning. The options vary as to what you may discover on this trail early in the morning.
Description: The TVA Wetland Viewing Area and Trails has birds from cardinals, gold finches, ducks, great blue herons, turtles, and lots of other things including Bugs Bunny. It is an easy walk on the paved trail. As you enter parts of the wetland area you may think you are back on a farm. We will start out early. What we don't see on the way in, we will on the way out. Bring your long lens as you may find it will work the best for some of the subjects you wish to photograph.
This is a good location to work on your technique with varying surroundings. You will have several options to explore and play with your camera. Tripod or monopod suggested.
What to wear: Dress comfortable.
What to bring: Camera, Tripod, water, snacks and whatever you need to be comfortable photographing around the trail and water.
Walking required: The amount of walking you do will be entirely up to you and how much exploring you want to do. It is about one and half miles round trip on a easy paved trail that we will spend most of the time on. This is the lower section. We may visit some of the other trails connected to the wetlands.
