This is why I never see too much above my head, or sometimes even in front of me when hiking in the South. You always have to be wary of poisonous snakes below.

Special thanks to the officer in Breaux Bridge, LA that let me macro photo his shoulder patch.

Any officer with a crawfish on his sleeve wins my approval.

I took this photo in Ville Platte, Louisiana along Main Street. It is a beautiful quiet little Cajun town. The people were fed up with loud car stereos and sagging pants. They passed a laws, and you now get a $250 bond, and trip straight to jail for violating either law. Every city should have this sign.

Have you ever wondered how all those beautiful, tasty, spicy, succulent, crawfish make it to your table? Well, here is the scoop. A flat bottom boat paddles through a shallow pond. The crawfish farmer picks up baited baskets each day, culling the crawfish,  letting the small ones slide back into the water (see slide in photo on side of boat), while the larger ones go to processing for tail meat, or whole in burlap sack to be boiled at some festival, restaurant, or home boil. It’s hot, muddy, dirty work, but rewarding, especially if your are eating the crawfish.

I took this photo in Eunice, Louisiana

I took this photo at Bogue Chitto State Park in Louisiana. I do not know the flowers name, but it is beautiful. Perhaps someone can comment and  identify it.
