Weekly Photo Challenge – Delicate

For the Weekly Photo Challenge – Delicate, I have couple photos to highlight the delicate balance of a beautiful lake.

A delicate ecological dance goes on between Lake Michigan, and the Great Lakes, with states that surround it.   As the lake steps a few inches forward to erode sand and soil from the shore, people move forward new techniques to reclaim it.  Scientist struggle with invasive fish species putting up nets and electric fences to block them from reaching the lake and damaging its ecosystem.

Then there is the delicate balancing act between environment and industry, conservation and economy going on along the lake’s coastline to utilize and still protect and maintain the great wealth in this natural resource of water.
