Insects under aquatic plants – July 22 2008

As I am leading a canoe trip from round lake to long lake I see these insects under a leaf. I assume that they hatched from the egg casings seen on the leaf but I don’t know that for sure. At first I glance they look like spiders.

3 Canadian Goslings – May 4, 2008

These 3 goslings are by the roadway at camp. Their parents leave as I approach in my car and then realize the goslings aren’t with them and they come back honking and hissing the whole away.

Northern Watersnake – April 14, 2008

As I’m coming back from lunch, I spot this Northern watersnake on the edge of the fen sunning itself. It doesn’t like how close I get so it takes a swim to escape.

It returns to the shore and I’m still to close so it takes off again.

It’s a gorgeous snake.
