Last weekend Swartzy and I went back over the pond and caught a lot of tiny carp and bluegill. While we were there we met a unicorn - a young lady tromping through the mud carrying a styrofoam cooler, a fish net, and a Nikon. She was out doing the same thing we were, but taking much better photos than we were. I borrowed a few to show y'all. If she doesn't mind, I will feature more of her work here. She has some great shots of local flora and fauna. (Hi, Tanya!)

She directed us to a spot with some really big tadpoles. We brought two home, and I hope to share photos of them as they develop. For now, though, I will share a few of her images from that visit to the pond.

This frog made a huge splash!

Who needs Shark Week when you have beasts like this a few blocks from home?!!!


May you find time to see the something more than a TV or a phone this week.
