Yolo Bypass

I was surprised by how much water there was in the Yolo Bypass area when I drove the auto tour there last weekend.  They must have gotten some rain when we got snow last week.   All the fields were flooded there, and so many of them were full of birds; it looked like snow geese but I couldn't be sure.  The birds are very good at staying in the fields not accessible through the auto tour!  Still there was plenty so see and photograph.  I liked this reflected plant life, especially the thicker plants, which reminded me of notes hanging on a musical score.

Ooohhh, what a nice reflection! And I do see the musical notes. :)

I remember this flooding and always wondered why it was happening. Probably a good idea there is a moratorium on building on that side of town. Very nice to see it again. Thanks Melissa!

Pięknie wyglądają rośliny odbijające się w lustrze wody. Życzę wesołych Świąt !
Look beautiful plants reflecting in the mirror of water. I wish you a Merry Christmas!

Your photo is very meditative. Reminds me of some Japanese art -- this link explains what I mean -- barbara
