Lichens and wetlands

Tuesday evening the sky cleared long enough to see a sunset.  The angle of the sun and the reflected light off the pond brought my attention to the lichens on the red oak in the backyard.  I had never noticed them before.  The oak is an old patriarch – 3 ½ feet diameter.  I got a few more shots of the upper end of the pond, which is marshy, then a shot of the sky at sunset. 

There’s a blue heron that likes to feed in this area.  It’s really skittish and flies off as soon as I walk into the sunroom.

Very pretty area you live in. The marsh area is probably an ever changing panorama of wildlife and activity.
