Best Spot In The Marsh

I’ve mentioned and photographed this exact spot a lot.

The best fishing spot in a 18,000 acre marsh.

This time it was a Great Egret.

Black-crowned Night Heron.

Also a pair of Bald Eagles usually hide up in large pines just off to the left here.

Pretty amazing!

A Great Opportunity, Great Blue

On a typical winter day here you don’t know what you will see, or how the weather will hold out.

A little dull, but Herons were out in force this time.

This Heron went down the length of the dike, almost at eye level.

The Great Blue are one of my favorite birds to shoot in flight.

Amazing how long they are when stretched out in full flight.

Rosalie Raymond And Friends 1882

I cannot walk past Rosalie without taking a photograph. She is one of five children buried here, all lost to disease.

Her head stone is the most elaborate being a stone baby carriage and a ‘plaster cast’ of Rosalie’s face.

Face casts were popular in the late 1800’s. This one remains since the monument has an overhang of stone to protect it.

Toys are left here, the panda being one that comes and goes at times.
