a marshy meditation

It is always a tease to stand looking at a wetland marshy scene like this and know that you are only likely to glimpse some birds, some flying insects, maybe a frog and all the while you know this type of place is just loaded with all kinds of life, in the water, hiding in the dense, lush plant life. A few years back I did have the good luck to watch a muskrat’s head, cutting the water surface as he swam the length of an open stretch of marsh water for about a minute or so. Why oh why do we destroy this kind of richness.
