Some of the reeds are over 3 meters high
the bullrush is out, not seen in the photo but there are 2 Kingfishers on the other side of the water.
I do not need to wait for more photos of the Birds there are pied kingfishers on the http://egyptwildlife.blogspot.com/2009/08/birds-dragonflies.html

Drat must have got one of those jumping critters.
This little fellow is waiting for the farmer to finish
cutting the maze,
By the time I had finished my morning walk
the field had been turned ready for the next crop
and the The pump was on full bore to flood the fields.
The cattle egrets today with the sheep.
the egrets as usual where on the side of the Calf
The farmer and his friends
The shepherd, no crooks here. "hmm" must clear my throat.
