I was flying back from Tampa to New Orleans, and so snapped some photos out of the plane window at the Lake Lery operation, on the morning of February 5th, 2016.
I thought it was awesome that i could get this from a commercial flight. I think you'd have to fly a Cessna at about 4000 feet to get something simliar--that's the main problem I've had with documenting the West Bay restoration from the airplane.
On the Passenger Pigeon Map of Lake Lery:
I flew from Tampa, FL to New Orleans. I sat on the right side of the plane, in a window seat behind the wing. This seat let me photograph obliques of a new restoration project, the Lake Lery Shoreline Restoration. Lake Lery's shoreline has disintegrated to oil pipelines and hurricane Katrina, and our federal agencies--USFWS in particular--are spending money to replace the shoreline marshes. These marshes are public, recreational fishing areas, as well as nursery grounds for many estuarine species.
