Bombay Hook (5): The Red Shoots

A month ago, I dropped in at Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge in Smyrna, Delaware, because I had a hankering to see the snow geese.

Well, the geese turned out to be kind of downer, as it were. But I did enjoy walking to the end of a boardwalk and surveying the vast brown marsh. As I turned back, a plant with strikingly red branches caught my eye…

Pretty, isn’t it?

geese in flight --> fish flight from death by crab (mythologically) --> mouse death --> woolybear flight from death --> plant life taking flight!

Brilliant series!
