A Matriarch

I caught this 19 inch smallmouth yesterday in a small creek in southcentral Pa.

You can see the sores on her bottom fin and her tail was getting worn. She had lived a long life in this small creek and is probable coming close to the end, but I returned her to live out her remaining days.

Her lair.

Got to see two Bald Eagles fishing the same section of creek as I was, but couldn't get any good pics with my little point and shoot camera.
Someone else was fishing this creek too.

It was a wonderful day to be afield.

The essence of the shot is how you shoot the bird, not how many. George Bird Evans

Nothing like a day in the wild to sharpen the senses.
