Lavergne Bay and Lavergne Marsh

Ottawa River

Ottawa, Ontario, Canada

Marsh has had changes over past couple of years. The spit of land between the marsh and the mouth of the Mississippi is now devoid of trees as they were cut down. Leaves marsh more open to flooding and wind. Large commercial dock and launch built just outside of marsh although not used much.

Two water snakes interacting. Something was squealing - I couldn’t tell if it was the snakes or if they had something in their mouths.
