Coming Sunday in Bay Area News Group newspapers — A special photo essay of the San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuge by BANG staff photographer Aric Crabb.
Aric uses his keen eye and unique photographic skills to bring you his special views of SUMMER at the S.F. Bay National Wildlife Refuge … the third in a four-part series.
Aric loaned me a few of his photographs so I can show you a special preview of his Sunday SUMMER photos. Be sure and look for more in Sunday’s newspapers!
The heat of summer leads kayakers and fishermen to the cool waters of the S.F. Bay National Wildlife Refuge complex.
The endangered Lange’s metalmark butterfly emerges from its chrysalis to live out a short two-week life span, feeding and mating under the blazing sun.
Nrwborn fawns graze in meadows and hawks soar overhead looking for fledgling terns and rodents during summer at the complex.
Part three of this four part series will explore the summer season at the Don Edwards, Antioch Dunes, San Pablo Bay, and Salinas River National Wildlife refuges. In case you missed them, you can see parts one and two, WINTER and SPRING, here http://www.contracostatimes.com/animals/ci_12245576
More to come on Sunday! Enjoy! /Gary
