Oh My Dam

The Prairie du Sac dam attracts Eagle watchers, fishermen, kayakers and photographers. I won't bore you with stories of a younger me popping out of a kayak in class three rapids at the dam oops too late. We stopped by last week because my cousin isn't happy unless she's spotting an eagle or heron or pelican or egret or some such thing.  I didn't get very good shots of whatever large white bird I was attempting to capture, but of course, she did.
I was however fascinated by this guy zipping right up to the gates.
Dam.


My fisherman cuz, Phil3, says, "Been there done that." He is insane.



I did capture this dam bird



And now for something completely different...

    1. It's one of those things that's close but so cool. I may make an effort to get shots of it when the eagles start coming in this winter.
