A minner for dinner

All he wants in life is a minner for dinner or perhaps a small peeper would do.




We were out today wading this stream inventorying the trash and all the water snakes were out. Here are a couple of pictures of what trash in a stream looks like. This is the side of nature photography that few people enjoy.

There are about 75 plastic bags caught on this one limb.





Here is a mixture of styrofoam containers, potato chip bags, plastic beverage bottles and plastic bags.

Curious, how close to civilization is that? It doesn't seem to me we would see that amount of trash in my neighborhood but maybe I just don't notice it.

Here is a map of DC gun violence over the last month or so. We were discussing it at dinner tonight (Gen Tso's Chicken Not minners) and talking about where we were and the people we encountered during the day. I have marked the areas we walk and count trash. The pictures of trash were taken for my upcoming testimony on new legislation.

Trash in streams is a socio economic issue. My daughter and I work in the very poorest and most violent parts of DC. I believe in my work and I believe in making even a small urban stream like this healthy for black nosed dace and water snakes.

I have the best scientific data on the east coast as far as trash in streams go. Maybe I will post a link to a live broad cast when I testify on the issue.

I am beginning to experiment around on picture editing but I think I need a better camera. Of course, a camera that can go hunting and that you can risk a dunking in the stream is not an expensive camera. That is probably a stupid attitude being as I think nothing of taking $1K binoculars, spotting scopes and rifle scopes hunting and then use a $50.00 camera.

Not a very friendly place, apparently.

Please post the link and I will listen.

But the bigger question is...will you be on the Leno Show?

Len

When you were planning a new development of homes you had to go and see a guy like me about your wetland permit and stormwater permits. How did you get along with that guy.

Almost always got along well with any of the inspectors. My company was known for being professional and not whining about inspectors...even if only rarely it would have been justified.

It was always good to deal with the companies who acted professional and understood I had no axe to grind with them. All I cared about were the tadpoles and minnows. If they took care of my tadpoles and minnows, I was happy.
