Drying out after two days of rain.

I think I've seen this 'dilla the last three visits to the reserve . Kind of an official greeter. Notice the darker segment in the middle lighter band of it's body. Or, Maybe it is the beauty mark on it's snout.

Yep, this is th' place..

These fire ants just won't go away

This is kind of a time lapse , left to right of a catch, hold and then swallow of a minnow.
Notice the water turbulence after the catch is still apparent at the swallow.

Just another pretty face. Dig that mascara...
