|Great Blue Heron in morning fog|
|Flower by pond's edge|
Early morning fog on the pond got me out with the camera yesterday.
Shortly after taking a picture of the heron I noticed this pretty purple flower by the pond's edge that was nicely backlit. Unfortunately it looks like it may be a highly invasive species; Purple Loosestrife. Even though it is a pretty flower, loosestrife can rapidly degrade wetlands and choke out fish and wildlife habitat.
