A walk in the marsh

Bitterns are extremely hard to find, often when at a marsh I can hear them in the vegetation, but they are shy to be seen. This one was at Rondeau Provincial Park, he stood in this same place all day and there wasn’t any convincing him to move, it was a stand off!



This female Snapper was carrying around about six inches of clay packed onto it’s back.  I often wonder if I should have removed the clay, what a heavy burden to carry around.  On the path near Devils Glen there were three females looking to lay eggs.  snpping turtle
