    Hi everyone, I just wanted to say hi and share some pictures I took from the recent devastating floods in Iowa. I am a beginner photographer so please feel free to critique or give any advice.

    You have some good shots there. Interesting how female deer will leave their young to drown... I am in northeastern Missouri, and I read a report that the Quincy, IL authorities have over 30 fawns rescued from the water where their moms swam off and just left them.

    That is correct. These pictures are heartbreaking but at the same, they need to be seen because a lot people underestimate the power of floods.

    Fortunately for the people of Sans Souci, they all have flood insurance. I can't say that for a lot of other people though :(

    The people of Sans Souci had BETTER have flood insurance where they live... an island in the middle of a river that is prone to flooding is one heck of a place to be without it.

    The duck seemed unaffected? (lol)

    Seriously, I do hope no one was lost or injured. My thoughts to all the residents, human AND animal.

    Nice shots.

    Thanks. The floods happened in early/mid June.

    The people of Sans Souci all have flood insurance because they live in a flood plain. However, there are a lot of people were affected and can't get flood insurance because the area where they live wasn't considered as a 'flood plain'.

    I had a co-worker had 5 feet of water in her basement. I helped her dismantle the pool table when it was all said and done :(

    The fawn shots are the real money shots. But they all show how bad it was. National Flood insurance is a joke. I tried to get it but, they refused me because, I was next to a creek.
