Clark Spring does not appear to be stagnant after all.
The Clark Spring basin is completely covered with miniscule greenish flower parts which produce the eerie key-lime-pie appearance from a distance.
I get out my water filter and plunge it in to test the water.
Fortunately, the yellowjackets don't seem to notice me here since I'm not interfering with their little trickle of water on the other end of the spring basin.
