This morning I went to Marl Bed Flats, and there wasn't much wildlife to speak of--well, there was a close encounter with a Feral Hog, which I never saw, but did hear very close to me. I think we startled each other, and we both went in opposite directions. Out on the flats there was not much to speak of, just the usual Red-winged Blackbirds, Eastern Meadowlarks, and wading birds, with the addition of a very distant Least Bittern which I saw flying between patches of reeds at the slough. Photographically, I turned my attention to the flowers, as there was some beautiful Water Hyacinth and Sensitive Briar blooming. I know I've posted photos of both of these flowers recently, but they're so pretty I thought I'd go ahead and do it again.
