Flooded Forest

Flooded Forest

Des Moines, IA

This is the same forest that I took the shots in entries Wood and also A Squirrel’s View. The area is all flooded now because of the high waters of the very near by Des Moines River.

I was standing in water half way up my thighs when I took this picture.

Puppy

Puppy

Ankeny, IA

Sorry it has been so long since I have posted a picture but here is the reason why. We got a new puppy from the animal rescue league. She is a 50 pound 9 month old lab/retriever mix. I am sure she will be coming out with me often when I go to take pictures. Her name is Ezri.
