More trash

I grabbed the camera yesterday afternoon, looking for the possibility of something interesting to picture at the park, when I noticed my pond clean-up work was far from over.  So I grabbed some bags instead and picked up loads of litter along the pond.  Just in one 50 yard stretch I hauled in over 40 plastic bottles.  It was particularly disturbing to see a muskrat's home entrance on the banks of the pond practically blocked by loads of trash.

In observing the litter I'm increasingly in favor of a ban on polystyrene cups and take-out containers.  It would also be good to see a 5 or 10 cent deposit on plastic bottles.
