They Grow So Fast
This past weekend I went over to the swamp to see if I could spot mom and any of her babies that she always had nearby at the end of last summer. Well I saw mom, she was all tucked backed into the reeds where you could barely see her, but of course she could easily spot me.
I only saw this one baby, although it’s going to get progressively harder to keep calling them babies as this one is already much longer then the last time I saw any of them. I was surprised, especially considering they don’t eat during the winter, and I had concerns they would even make it OK. Judging by this youngster, any of the former babies that did make it must be doing quite well!
