A spot I have looked at a hundred times yet never did I take a photograph.
For some reason today was the day it struck me. Best viewed large.
A serene image I think, but there are many things to see here.
The obvious is the Great Egret on the far bank. This is a corner of an old plantation rice field, long gone back to a marsh.
On the left shore stands a Tricolored Heron, waiting for the water to rise. The palms mixed in the tree line just gives this a warm look.
Old wooden ramps are still in the water. Had the water been high I’m sure an Alligator would have been sunning on at least one.
Besides being a peaceful scene, a little bit of the old southern marsh is nicely on display.
Glad I took the shot.
