The big blue truck comes to a rest on the edge of the marsh at Muddelty Creek. I had decided to take a few minutes and see if the Red wing Blackbirds had returned. I pressed the button on my door and lowered the windows to listen for that familiar trolling call to ring out through the cattails. There was a few random calls from the chickadees but no red wing Blackbirds. At least not yet. Out in the distance a few ducks paddled around in the water at the very outer limit of my longest lens. I tried to stalk in closer but one loud quack and the whole flock became airborne at once disappearing into the bushes. And then the wind came filling the air with downy seeds that circled in the eddies. It was almost like snow. Everywhere I looked the cattail seed floated softly by. This area has the largest concentration of cattails I’ve seen. The highland delta is a bit of a rare thing here.
I decided to take the opportunity to capture the moment when the seeds found the breeze and discovered that the breezes were changing direction. A gust would come from the south and a few minutes later the next one would hail from the North.
A breeze from the North moving the down in the opposite direction of the feature image.
The southern breeze had more activity today and that means that seasons are changing. It’s only 25 days before the first day of Spring!
