It is day twenty-nine of my trek into the wilderness of Indiana in search of the ever elusive Little Shell Rib Socks*. While, I was mildly optimistic at the start of the day, my hope waned with each passing puddle that revealed once more, that there were no socks. I despaired of catching my prey at all, but once more my perserverance paid off.
As I was walking along the Celery Bog, I discovered a pair of socks peeking along the water’s edge. To my utter delight, I soon realized that they were the exact pair of socks I had been hoping to find. In addition, they were a well made pair who were obviously nesting. I decided to leave this pair, and look for a pair to photograph elsewhere.
Luckily it has begun to rain, this is excellent news in my quest for the Little Shell Rib Socks as they migrate during rainy periods. I noticed signs of some travelling Little Shell Rib Socks in the fields close to my home. Happily, I discovered, a pair of them moving to a new home.
I managed to capture a photo before they moved on, ever in search of water.
