I just came in from a slow row around the lake's perimeter. Much of what I found are just little things. A pretty flower. A tiny frog. They could easily be overlooked. But if they were, so much would be missed.
Below is a glimpse into the world I discovered on my late afternoon row.
|A pretty flower
|A tiny frog, no bigger than my fingernail
|Mama spider guarding her spiderlings
|Looks like this orb weaver of the genus Neoscona
will soon be dining on a dragonfly wrap
|This green tree frog looks like he's ready to leap from one pickerelweed leaf to another
|Blue on green - A dragonfly that didn't get caught in a spider's web
|And finally, this gulf fritillary butterfly looks like it has settled in for the night holding tight to its pickerelweed leaf bed
