It's fall... which means time for a little spring work. This past week was our annual habitat and fish monitoring at Colvard Spring in north Georgia with our awesome friends at the Conasauga River Alliance, Georgia Department of Natural Resources, and the Nature Conservancy. And since the weather stayed warm, we also got to work on our underwater photography skills! Here are a few pictures from our trip:
The algae can look almost otherworldly... The small fish near the surface are western mosquitofish (Gambusia affinis), which are the most abundant fish species in the spring.
