Chasing After A Green Heron
Sometimes the smallest of wonders makes my day continue nicely.
One of the smaller of herons, the Green Heron, has been known to put an insect on the water to attract fish. An amazing find just checking out a county park for a picnic area. It caught three or four fish and frogs while I watched.
This beach went under water three days ago . Now the top of the hill I walked down is at the edge of the water. The Mississippi River was out of it's banks when I was in Burlington 7/6/14, a 15 year high water mark. Barge traffic is on hold at this end of the river.
