Great Blue Lotus

Owed to Nature

Boston, United States

Artist's Description

End of August, finds the wetlands of Great Meadows not wet at all. In fact it’s quite the opposite after a summer with little rain coupled with the Fish and Wildlife Service drawing down water levels in order to stimulate a healthier variety of vegetative and invertebrate population growth in the refuge. So with the Upper Pool’s marsh now a small stream flowing through a flat of dry, lotus filled mud, a Great blue heron (Ardea herodias) perches on the banks looking out for catfish, allowing me to step out onto the flats for a “bird’s eye view” of a great heron in a sea of summer lotus.
