Today I visited Hog Island Wildlife Management Area. This is located on the inside of a bend in the James River, near Williamsburg, Virginia. It is usually a good bet for seeing plenty of wildlife. To get to it, you have to drive through a security checkpoint for the Surry Nuclear Power Station, so it is a reasonably safe place to visit as well.
Hog Island is about 1 hour 45 minutes from where I live, so I got an early start (left around 6am), and was there until about 12:30pm. I managed to get several pictures that I think are pretty good (and a ton that were pretty lame), so I think I will make several blog posts tonight instead of dumping a bunch of pictures into a single post.
