Default Toxic algae

Here are some pics of our flooding that is down from the spring but still widespread.
Algae grows in the stagnant pools and ponds. We had a week of 90+ weather a couple of weeks ago. Heat and a lack of wind made for deadly algae blooms. This algae probably isnt toxic but losing a dog is a tough way to find out.

Flood level is going down. Note grass on fence showing previous depth.
This is the Big Sioux River which empties into the Missouri River.

This is spring flood level in the middle of July.
High water everywhere here has been a real bonanza for waterfowl. We see pelicans in the flooded cornfields. Many birds didnt bother to continue migrating to their breeding grounds in North Dakota and Canada.
How my beloved Pheasants are faring is hard to tell as so much vegation limits seeing them.

Oh and we got a couple inches of rain last night.
