Wetlands

After church and lunch, we all drove out through the country to the local wetlands. On the way, there were cows, horses, fields of tall corn, and a spectacular number of sunflowers in bloom. It wasn't entirely clear to me whether they were wild or cultivated. The local sunflower is bushy with several small heads.

At the wetland, we saw a striped lizard, many white egrets, some water critters C identified as whirlygig beetles, and a huge grape vine. We didn't see any live crawfish, but near the water, there were many scattered pieces of crawfish shell, evidently left by birds.
