Few people get to see a scene like this, I’m out there and I don’t always get this. Best viewed full screen to see the details.
The photograph was taken facing one of the dikes out in an old rice field. The steep bank isa side of this old dike and you can walk this for a long way.
A Great Blue Heron is on the dike, another below to the right in the water.
This is fall so the reeds are down and the color more brown than anything. On the bank below the dike is a large Alligator sleeping.
And of course easily seen are the White Pelicans swimming by.
The immediate surrounding wildlife areas are over 350,000 acres. That is like a small country.
However, just today I read the other connecting public/private wildlife lands now are approximately 1,000,000 acres. Yep, one million.
