Seabourne ... After The Rain

While waiting for some fellow CPC TMN buddies to catch up with me, I thought I would go iNat the demo gardens for some insect diversity. Not disappointed! While ducked down 'in the weeds,' passersby would ask me about the dead fish. I went to investigate. Hundreds if not more than a thousand fish of all sizes were floating belly-up, eyes bugged, apparently having died a horrible death. Hypoxia is the likely culprit, but without water testing capacity, it's hard to say.

Here are the species I logged. The Rambur's forktail brothel in the recovering baccarus (the city chopped them all down in winter) was my favorite spot of the day.
