Wetland Series continued

When I think of the wetlands this is usually how I picture them in my mind. The sun shines there too, but the foggy, wet days seem to fit them better to me. Maybe it has something to do with duck season, or maybe those are just the kind of days that call me there. The last picture was more of a manufactured wetland, created from a depression and flooded well away from any natural river flooding. It captures the basic spirit, but it's just not quite right. It feels too isolated. This is the real deal. The Illinois River is just a stone's throw away.
