I became aware of the water’s surface moving as I watched a Green Heron fly away.
Then, wham a school of fish exploded out of the water.
Fortunately for me they repeated this frenzy multiple times.
One or two much larger fish seemed to be pursuing the smaller ones.
The smaller ones must have been getting their own lunch, because they kept coming back when they very easily could have swam back down the creek.
The brick and stone work supports a culvert under a dike that controls water flow into the main pond at Magnolia Cemetery.
This creek is tidal, about 1/2 mile (0.8 KM) as the crow flies to the Cooper River, just west of Charleston’s Ravenel Bridge.
