I just read an article over the weekend about the deadly dangers of (!) overuse. I guess even Mark Twain was annoyed about it. Guilty as charged. But when you see a Sea Monster it seems like an apostrophe moment. (title) Do you see her in the first photo? If not you'll have to suffer through a few beautiful nature photos first.

I love the lighting in this one.

Who is this interloper?

As promised...Minnie the Monster, Lake Creature and local Nessy. She's at Brownie lake this year. So on Sunday we rented a kayak and crossed lake Harriet and Cedar lake on a journey to find her.

She posed beautifully. Boy, I'm such a good photographer. I mean how many people are able to capture a Sea Monster close up. Usually they are swimming away so fast that all you see is a blurry blob. You know kind of like all those Big Foot photos. I'm patting myself on the back right now.

At this point we are basically becoming fast friends. But it is almost time to go. Sniff.

What you don't see after we left is Minnie shedding an artificial tear as we paddled away. "Be sure to eat your mil foil!" I yelled back.

I can feel the terror in your words! You did such a great job keeping your composure. Even with the sea (or lake) monster, it looks like a nice place. Great photos also!
