Sachuest Point National Wildlife Refuge

I spent a recent Wednesday shooting the breeze at the Sachuest Point National Wildlife Refuge in Rhode Island. In its scale, the refuge had strong resemblances to World's End in Hingham MA. Sachuest Point though felt a bit more out there unlike World's End from where you can see packed Hull MA as well as the Boston skyline. The former also had noticeably more wild life. I spotted whales out on the bay, for instance. Here are some National Geographic totally non-winnable photos taken with an iPhone 7:

Is this a butterfly or what?

What's the grassy equivalent of a scree called? Lots of bugs flitting about.

More flowers in this shot. When I reviewed this shot on location.. on the iPhone screen, the depth of field was not as obvious as it is here.

What the sign says.

This bunneh looked like it wanted company but it would never have worked.

Butterfly.

Shady tree. It started getting quite humid in the early afternoon.

In the end, there was not much to do. Since access was free and each of the trails rather short, I could certainly see this spot as a place to take a sunny break from your work day if you are a supremely bored remote worker who lived nearby. There were a bunch of kids for a school trip, lots of fat locals, a few in-shape locals and joggers, fly fishermen and tourists like me who were just showing up to walk around, grunt and leave. End.
