Description

After a half day, I was traveling back up, and I had to stop at this little overpass to look at the river. :)

*I had permission from the nearby church to park in their lot. I got to show the pastor some of the cool damselflies I saw. Outreach!

Description

All the low channels in this area have been flooded and holding water, so many aquatic critters were in these pools, including this gar and a number of other smaller fish.

I think this is a Spotted Gar, but I'm not certain.
