06.18.2021 Frog Friday-Bump on a Log Edition

Visiting Moosehorn Pond this past Saturday, I felt that I had struck out looking for the little green guys. I did find all those nice lily pads with their water drops, but I am always looking for frogs. I gave … Continue reading

06.16.2021 Lily Pads as Pacman

0-6.12.2021 Saturday Night Soaker

It was raining when I left the house this morning but radar showed it letting up to the north and, sure enough, when I arrived at the pond it had stopped.  But the evidence remained. White Water-lily-Nymphaea odorata

06.07.2021 An eventful Sunday morning at Moosehorn Pond

I went on another bullfrog safari yesterday.  It was a little successful but they are still a bit behind schedule due to the cool mornings we’ve been having.  I’ll share one or two on FF. Once I accepted the dearth … Continue reading

06/01/2021 Foggy Valleys and Hills

There wasn’t much evidence of fog during my ride to New Salem this morning.  But the NOAA site said there would be some and, sure enough, they were right.  Just in the valleys but that allowed for some nice landscape … Continue reading
