Upper dam

The view from the front of our house, during a summer shower of rain. The dams are full, the tanks are overflowing, and the garden is flourishing. Not visible in this photo is the darter who was fishing in the dam. Darters swim with only their curved neck above the surface of the water (which is why they are also known as a snake bird), diving down repeatedly. This one was underwater when I pressed the shutter.
