July 30, 2009
It is pushing noon when I come across this small pond that is one of many that dot this part of the country. Shallow and nearly swamp like these ponds are filled with Pond Lillies. I have to make my way out on an old rotting log that protrudes out into the pond to get this picture. It won't be many more years that this rotting log will hold my weight and I would be a mess if I slipped off into this muck. Dragonflies ply the surface searching for mosquito larvae. Their beautiful irridescenent bodies glistening with color as they work the water like miniature helicopters. I can attest to the fact that they are missing a few. Quite a few.
