Today I was down at the park and was looking for signs of Spring. Most of the ice was off the lake and there were a number of water foul on the lake, wood duck, grebes, and loons. I miss the swans all ready but I know they will be back next year. I hate to see them go but I am also glad they are gone, Spring must be coming soon.
Besides the birds I saw this little guy in the water. I'm not sure but I think it is a dragonfly larva, I will try to find out. They may be there all winter but I didn't have to drill a hole in the ice to see them.
But the best sign of Spring I found on my own back porch. (That's a fly!)
