Dawn in a swamp
Canoed to a swampy cove this morning with the dog for company. Redwing Blackbirds everywhere. Watched two pairs of geese dispute nesting territory. Had a beaver persistently circling us and slapping it's tail. Heard a turkey gobbling in the distance. A pair of Mallards flew past close aboard with their wingtips touching the water. Caught four nice White Perch for dinner and a few small sunfish destined to become crawfish bait. The dog fell out of the canoe and then climbed back in without getting me wet.
