I love wetlands

Recently spent a little time at Heron Pond in Illinois. One of my fave places to wander. Learned about gabion baskets and castor mounds.

Such a striking photo. I am so drawn to that reflective surface, and it must be why I like the lakes and ponds of the Adirondacks, rather than the turbulent water of the ocean. Put me on the side of a quiet lake anyday.

I love Heron Pond. One tie when I was there, herons were squawking in the distance--felt like we were in the age of the dinosaur...

Just found your blog, love all the textures you're getting! Thanks for sharing.
