On a dike, ACE Basin, South Carolina.

Note; the hard, rough looking dirt is actually mud pulled up from the marsh bottom. Recently this dike was built up somewhat by digging the bottom mud and dumping it on the dike trail. Makes it hard to walk but wind and rain smooth it out over time.

Watching them is certainly more entertaining that reading the news.

Most of the ones we have been photographing are around 2 inches (5 c) and that includes their long tail.
