Grasping at Straws
Nature offers plenty to keep keen observers occupied and avid photographers snap happy. While tromping though the Kewaunee Marshlands Walk yesterday I noticed this interesting display of nature.
This is some delicate vine that coiled itself around nearby grasses and, though dormant, is still maintaining its grip well into the middle of winter.
The www.cityofkewaunee.org website describes the Marshlands Walk: “This quiet and peaceful boardwalk winds its way through the heart of the Kewaunee River Marsh. Located just north of the Kewaunee Landing, this wooden boardwalk goes through an area of natural marshland vegetation revealing a wealth of different animal and plant species. One can bird watch, fish or just enjoy the scenic views at the end of the boardwalk while sitting on the deck benches looking out at the Kewaunee River.The walkway was constructed in 1993 in a cooperative effort between the City of Kewaunee and the Wisconsin Coastal Management Program”
