Well, now you know it's farm country, it's Amish country, and it's lake country, but did you know this is also wine country?
This is a winery among many in the region. Wine grapes growing in the foreground
We headed back toward the NWR, passing more signs for the Amish trades
We arrived at one pond, and the below the surface, it was teeming with fish
No surprise that this Green heron was there. Talk about an easy meal.
At one point, he perched on this dead stump. Thanks Mr. Heron.
A Kingfisher flew over
I'm sure he was hoping to dive down into the water to grab some of those fish
And probably would have, if we hadn't been there.
More to come... sorry for the delays. Can't be helped. Thank you for all of your nice comments. Things are still pretty complicated here, but I'm doing okay! I hope you all are well!!
