Photo Challenge: Great Lakes’ Humble Beginnings

In the Great Lakes state, there is an abundance of liquid attractions.  But, even Lake Superior, which could easily pass for  a freshwater inland sea, has its humble beginnings in laughing springs and rippling brooks.   A few of Michigan’s modest tributaries for your viewing enjoyment.

The Swollen and the Scrawny

Sure signs of Spring in Michigan: swollen streams and skinny deer.  Not to worry, though, as you can see the deer are foraging heartily  to put on needed pounds.  At this locale, they were much more concerned about nibbling tender green shoots than they were about an errant human wandering into their neighborhood.
