My lost post from Thursday

Things I saw at the creek today:

Dozens of blue and green dragonflies.

A red winged blackbird.

A turtle.

Fresh racoon tracks to the water's edge.

A blue-claw crab (first I have seen here) patrolling the water's edge, looking for a fiddler crab to have for lunch.

A blue-claw crab swimming for its life across the water with a gang of minnows hot on its tail.

An egret.

Otto III, King of the Fiddler Crabs, standing his ground and waving his claw at me.

And in the good news department:

My son made Petty Officer, Third Class.
Whoo-hoo!! Conga-rats to him!!
