10: High and mighty water!

11: The March flood.

14: The view from 20 floors up.

15: The water did not cover the pipe, but it came close.

16: Very interesting to be able to walk this close to the raging river. But it was safe - very safe.

17: Look how brave we were!

19: We saw lots of fish (herring and shad) on their annual spawning trips up the James River. They had to work harder than ever to swim up the flooding river.

20: Nest building going on in earnest.

21: Hi, Honey! I'm back from the Stick Depot!

26: Rescue training. "Help me, please, handsome fireman!!"

28: Osprey and Herons and Egrets abound next to railways, corporations and law firms.

31: My self-portrait on Interstate 95. | Parking at the flood wall. | "Preferred" parking actually.

32: The April flood

42: Mr. Pettus gets several very large catfish. | Here are three generations of Pettus men who love to fish. | Father and son

44: Northern River Snakes - quite harmless, but it was nice that they kept their distance anyway.

45: If you're trembling, turn the page quickly!!!

48: Patience...

50: The trees filled out, making it more difficult to spot the nests. But we know they're there!

52: We were watching a heron looking for fish when a small snake darted from the rocks and got one. | He carried it up the rocks - the snake was so small, it was barely visible. Can you see it?

53: One of many different expressions of the heron.

55: The Pipeline Walkway under the CSX railroad tracks.

58: A happy catch! | Down the hatch whole and wiggling. "Nature Up close"

59: There are all kinds of critters at the river. | Spawning fish during the May flood!
