He’s got fishing lines strung across the Louisiana rivers
Gotta catch a big fish for us to eat
He’s setting traps in the swamp catching anything he can
He’s gotta make a living, he’s a Louisiana Man

On the way from Baton Rouge to Houston, we spent a couple hours at the Lake Martin Nature Preserve near Breaux Bridge (Pont Breaux), Louisiana. I think this guy is an anhinga.

Blue on green makes the dragonfly a little hard to see.

There's a snowy egret rookery on site, but this is about as close as I got to it, far behind the trees. I could hear them squawking.

Cypress and algae

Trees and vines

Snowy egret in flight

Spider webs, spider webs

Turtles take the sun.

Water-walking anhinga returns.

To the lake!

Feeding time

Flying time. They didn't like me to get too close.

Back on the road to Houston. Here's the bridge in “Breaux Bridge” over the Bayou Teche.

Religious icons watch over the liqueurs at Cafe Des Amis in Breaux Bridge.

This guy welcomes you to the mens room.

Zydeco brunch happens every Saturday.
