Marsh Life and the Swamp Dog Ghost

Having the day off work, I headed out early this morning. I wanted to make the most of the day before the rain moved in. A little sunshine early then clouds moved in. No rain so that was okay. Doesn't make for pretty pictures but you can't have everything.

Spent a lot of time in the marsh area seeing what was out an about. In the brown sameness of the winter landscape, there is still beauty to be found.

Deer, foxes, Swamp Sparrow, Song Sparrow. In the back area of the main pond that leads to the marsh area, there were some Mallards swimming. As I watched and listened to them for a while, my eyes began to play tricks on me. Must have been some of that elusive swamp gas mixed in with the morning fog. I got such a chuckle out of it, I thought I would share what I have termed the "Swamp Dog Ghost".

Aren't optical illusions fun?! You have to have a little humor in life. Hope your refurb project is going well. Love your spiderweb photo's and tried to leave a post but kept getting an error.
