    Way south of there, TE. Just north of Mojave, entering California City. There's about an Acre of this stuff, very cool. I lived in Susanville (Standish) in 94 & 95; love the Warners and some of those reservoirs in BFE will surprise you.

    Here is the cuttie I caught just behind the bow above actually, was holding in the same general area just 5 feet downstream or so.

    I was never so happy as when, at 11 yrs. old, I was told we were leaving the Sonoran Desert and moving to Oregon. However, if you look, the desert has it's own intrinsic beauty.

    Cobble detail on the beach yesterday as I was heading to the van. Cutts were not very cooperative but the lighting and scenery were pretty legit.

    Found this lil' lady sitting on two eggs in our back yard yesterday. How cool is it that they make their nests out of spiderwebs and lichen?

    I can see now why the heron (it is a heron right?) is such an effective predator of fish, you can see just how easy they can get downgaze, and rather than have a tube for a neck, it is far more like an axe head, to split the water open with minimal resistance. Never thought of it that way, always pictured the eyes more above the skull meridian and the neck as just a pipe...
