PHOTOPAGE 372

   

   

 

 Late July 2008

The Canal Park has beefed up security as witnessed in 372.13.  This tightly formed pack of police cyclists seek out rogue deer (372.12) and off-side anglers (372.14). Actually, it was a local police cadre on a training exercise.

The Dragonfly is an aerial predator of insects and there are many varieties here. They frequent bodies of water because their young (nymphs) are aquatic.

The clouded eye covers on the 2 1/2 foot water snake below indicates that it is about to shed its skin - and is a bit blind allowing me to approach closely and gently lift its head with a small stick.
