A few weeks back, I took the drone for a very brief flight around McHose Park’s Turtle Pond. It was very windy, so it was very brief. I just needed to get a quick “Cool” Drone Video of the Week. While I was there, I snapped a few photos:
If you look closely, in some of these pictures, you can see how low the pond is. It has atrophied at least a yard from its normal banks. Not as bad as the pond a Dickcissel, but you can see how the drought this year has really did a number on ponds in Iowa.
