Watching the moon phase into a total eclipse
Once the moon returned to the night I went to bed, getting up a few times, and watching it set in the west. That previous day was really nice and stayed clear. I thought on such a nice day that I would go sit in a swamp area a friend identified as good woodpecker viewing. It was still a bit muddy, but I was able to get into an area that up until two weeks before had been under water. Huge trees surrounded me and kept me company , while I enjoyed the day in the shade.
I hoped these Turkey Vultures weren't looking me over.
As far as one can see , it is really barren of ground vegetation.
One edge of the water remained outside of the heavily wooded area.
Sitting in a nice folding chair, kicking off a few pounds of mud.
