More than water

This is a photo of a wood stork at Corkscrew during wetter times, and back when the stew of aquatic fauna in the receding water column provided a thick and reliable food base for foraging.
.
So it’s just not “all about the water,” it’s also about the critters and fish living within.
.
And even when the water levels bounce back, it could take a while to replenish the stock of aquatic fauna to its full volume.
.
In that way, not all water levels are equal, even when they appear to be equal as measured on the hydrologic staff gage.
.
Doesn’t it seem that there’s always more than meets the eye?
.
As a hydrologist, I find myself always focusing on where the top of the water surface makes its mark on the staff gage; but what lies beneath that surface, in the water column below, is where the full story lies.
.
But first we’ve got to get some more water higher up on the staff gage.
.
Go south Florida wet season!
Keep the rains coming.
I’m your number 1 fan … or at least one of them.
