At the campground there are 4 stone pillars with a chandelier hanging from pyramid bars. She’s hoping to grow the flowers up the bars. It’s going to look beautiful, but it looks pretty cool already.
After a few days of rain (not surprised at all. It is New England), this guy popped up. I kept waiting for the hookah smoking caterpillar but he was nowhere to be seen.
Finally captured a photo of one of the hundreds of zippy dragonflies. I’m glad he hovered long enough for me to shoot him but not long enough to be eaten by a fish.
In the middle of the lake, to guide you over the old dam, are 2 Channel signs. How a spider made it all the way here, I don’t know. But it looks neat and is not what I expected to see.
A rogue duck feather made for a nice simple pic.
The bullfrogs in the cove have been taunting us every time we go down there to find them. Finally, I found this guy hiding under some leaves. He must’ve thought his camo was working because he didn’t move at all.
This is an atypical house you find on Manchaug Pond. It just looks like a fun house to be in.
I’ll let the captions be my words for this post. Hope you all enjoy.
She’s everywhere. This particular day she came exceptionally close to me.
Just a mallard.
She’s so pretty.
Big momma snapping turtle laying her eggs.
She laid 20 eggs while I was watching.
Osprey with dinner in his clutches being chased by a pair of orioles.
This heron’s a jerk. All he does is fly away taunting me.
I learned to start bringing my camera with me anywhere I go that’s not in a car. There’s so many creatures here at Holbrooks! Every time I walk down to the little swimming area, there’s something. The little fish love hanging out ear the wall. Today, as a matter of fact, I saw 3 sun fish swimming under a duck. They followed him everywhere. I couldn’t photograph the fish because of the glare off the water.
A few days ago there was a snapping turtle laying eggs. I watched her for a good while. She could care less that I was there.
