I’d been seeing some impressive images coming out of Magnolia Cemetery in downtown Charleston and decided to check it out.
This is a huge place! In addition to a nice variety of birds, I also found some interesting history. More on that later.
It looks promising based on the bird signatures.
First on the list was a beautiful drake Mallard.
And it’s companion.
Red Shouldered Hawk…
Red Tail Hawks…
And the usual Herons and Egrets.
Then, while driving through the cemetery I came upon this:
All crews members from the first combat submarine, interred together. Some only a few years ago, as a result of restoring the Hunley, which is on display not far from here.
Back home for lunch, then on to Magnolia Plantation for the afternoon.
And, unfortunately, another camera disaster. Tomorrow’s another day.
