Small Wonders at the Springs

There is an endless array of small wonders at the springs,if one looks closely.

Different types of lizards, toads, turtles & fish abound. Mullets, well over a foot long, swim up into the springs. There also bluegill & bass, to name a few. When the water is clear of people, the fish are even more numerous. The water in this image is 4+ feet deep.(Does that give you an idea of how clear it is?) I shot it using a "behind glass" setting.

London caught one of the biggest grasshoppers I have ever seen. He carried it to a spring & threw it to the fish. We watched as it raced away from a school of fish & climbed atop the water grasses. It then made it to the safety of a nearby tree. We all high-fived for the survival of the fastest!
