We saw hundreds of young American Toads this day, but we saw only this one Wood Frog, with its distinctive eye mask.
Seen need a fresh-water beaver pond/marshy area. (The colors were a bit washed-out, no thanks to the temperamental camera, but otherwise... it was a lovely dragonfly.) Seems to be obelisking, as dashers are known to do.
ooo pretty. (All over the place in Beaver Pond at Sessions Woods.)
Through binoculars, the red-striping was evident, particularly towards his underbelly, which was white.
Croaked, and startled me. Probably one of the proud parents of the numerous tadpoles in the pond. (Part of The Wildlife of ESPN "series.")
admittedly, I know very little about mushrooms. Now that I have looked into the subject, I have discovered that mushrooms are more complicated than I thought! Currently, my best guess for this one is an Agaricus Bitorquis, with the gills having moved out of their pink phase and into their chocolate-brown phase. When I first saw them, they were growing out of some rather compact mulch near a bush. It had rained fairly recently. Over the next day or two, they dried up rather quickly. It wasn't until after they dried up that I found that making a bisection would be helpful. I did one anyway, for what it's worth. (Part of the Wildlife of ESPN "series.")
Yep. That's right. I went and posted Canada Geese. However, I see these guys every day at work, and more often than not, they are in the road blocking traffic or fussing at an employee. They amuse me greatly. Each season we have at least one pair that come here to lay eggs and raise their young. (Part of the Wildlife of ESPN "series")
Seen along the trail at the Great Swamp Wildlife Reservation. No big story. It was just there. First time I'd noticed one.
At work near a window, I saw this bird swoop onto the tree. Unfortunatly, the picture is taken through tinted glass. It was yellow, with the black and white wings. There are some woodland-like areas nearby, as well as a small pond. (Part of the Wildlife of ESPN "series")
I've seen this guy around a lot, but haven't ever been able to make a positive ID. Though, I'm sure it should be an easy one. The location is a beaver pond. I did notice some tail pumping from the bird today.
