Day in Davis, CA
It’s always fun to explore a new area. Last month had the pleasure to do just that. Davis is a college town that sits just outside of Sacramento. The campus has an Arboretum that stretches alongside a creek through Redwood trees and is just lovely.
We lucked out on the weather–a rain shower passed by quickly and we had a day of clouds and sun.
Some flowers along the way…second shot is with my Lensbaby Composer!
A Bird Sanctuary is also located in Davis–just as you are entering the area. One would not think that a sanctuary for birds would lie next to a major freeway–but this one does.
Couple of shots to share the habitat as viewed through my Lensbaby…
I shared more bird images on a previous post, but here are a few I couldn’t resist sharing again. Simply because I do not see these birds often on my river trips, so it was especially nice to catch them in flight and enjoying the beautiful sanctuary.
I look forward to exploring Davis again!
Very nice. I especially like the reflection images. Looks like it was a beautiful day.
I never pulled off the freeway when I passed Davis. Obviously, I missed out.

Thanks Bill! Can’t tell you how many times I drove past this in the last 20 years and never knew it was there either!!
