Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

We are very lucky to have a wetlands area only a couple of miles away from our house.

A wetland is a distinct ecosystem that is flooded by water, either permanently or seasonally, where oxygen-free processes prevail. The primary factor that distinguishes wetlands from other land forms or water bodies is the characteristic vegetation of aquatic plants, adapted to the unique hydric soil.

Part of this used to be a lodge for a tannery but a very effective water sustainability project made this and the nearby streams, havens for wildlife. Trees were planted and farm animals prevented access.

A little further along the path, there are wooden staging places, over the wetland area, so people can get better views of the plants and creatures.

I was considering moving just a little closer to the reeds and tall grasses, when this guy walked past, wearing a red shirt. That was too good to miss! By being at this distance, it also allowed me to include a greater sized reflection.

As a workshop, I will show a view closer to the wooden staging.

Have a great day, Bev :-)
