  •  Very nice! (15+ / 0-)

    It's always interesting to see images from places that are very close to familiar locations but yet a bit different.  And I always love a map showing different geological/ecological regions.  The map has a peculiar feature over on the left hand side.  Some of the colored regions of the Lake Erie/Ontario lowlands have been extended into Ontario but not all of them.  So those two are little fingers of color extending into empty white space.  As that is exactly where I grew up that is intriguing.

    Relatively cool the last couple of days here in Tallahassee - light rain this AM which has stopped now.  Went down to the lake (Lake Jackson) for the first time in quite a while last night - I've either been out of town, busy, tired, or it's been raining.  Water level is up by about a foot I'd guess.  Limpkin, Purple Gallinule, and RW Blackbirds still hanging out in the (now partly submerged) shoreline vegetation.  Three anhingas flew by - unusual to see them flying in a group in my experience.  Lots of Snowy Egrets flying home in the evening as well as a single Glossy Ibis.

    Saw a Cotton Rat in the vegetation as well.  First time I've seen one at the lake
