Won't you walk with us a while and see a few of the things we saw...
Mysterious trails through the water and duckweed. Wonder who swam here?
A tupelo gum berry atop a pile of shed cypress needles.
Woolly aphids on an alder branch.
The pond looking pretty in the afternoon sun.
A green treefrog nestled behind the book in the phone booth.
Sunlight streaming through fiery oak leaves.
An acorn-munching turkey left evidence of his presence (that's a turkey dropping -- probably from a male as suggested by the j-shape of the dropping).
One of several cricket frogs out enjoying the warm November afternoon.
A rolled log revealed this striking red-backed salamander and another salamander busy regenerating its tail.
Fate was not kind to this earth snake. By the looks of the puncture wounds I found on the body and the fact that the snake wasn't even partially eaten, I have to think a house cat caused its demise. (Please keep your cats indoors.)
Sometimes, when you stop to take a picture of one thing you get something you don't expect. I was after the Lycopodium, the harvestman was a bonus.
The nor'easter we experienced a couple of weeks ago left plenty of sign of its passing. Note the dark high water mark on the trees along the creek.
Almost stepped on this little cricket frog. He wasn't too keen on being caught, but changed his mind when he discovered the hand that held him was nice and warm. I had to shoo him off!
