Different Views from the Same Place

I took the picture above and the two snake pictures below while standing in the same spot (by the edge of Lake Tamarack at the spillway), yesterday.  The snake is a nonvenomous watersnake.  It slithered into the water and swam about four feet from the edge, as I approached the lake.  Then it stayed perfectly still, holding its head above water, for several minutes as I watched it and took some pictures.

Lake & Wildlife Partners Meeting Today (9:30 a.m. at Club Tamarack Rec Room)

All Bent Tree property owners and residents are welcome.  Today’s scheduled program is “North Georgia Native American History – A Different Perspective”, presented by the chair of Lake & Wildlife’s Forest Conservation Committee.

I’m not sure if the program will mention the recent activities of The Mountain Stewards, but click here if you’re interested in reading “Uncovering Hidden Indian Cultural Heritage in the Southern Appalachian Mountains Using Dowsing”The article was written last year by the president of The Mountain Stewards and his wife.  Some of their dowsing explorations were done in Bent Tree and Big Canoe.

While the horses are away, the bluebirds will play.

A lot of juvenile bluebirds were flying back and forth between a tree and the arena fence at Bent Tree’s Saddle Club Horse Park yesterday evening.  They were moving fast, but I was able to get a couple of quick snapshots of a few of the birds.
