PHOTOS OF THE WEEK

IN MY COLUMN FOR DEC. 20/21, I OFFER SOME "MEMORY PRESENTS" FROM MY CALENDAR YEAR OF 2014. THEY INCLUDE...


"THE WILDERNESS CALL OF A LOON"

I PHOTOGRAPHED THIS LOON IN CHENANGO COUNTY, NY, LAST SPRING - RESTING AND FEEDING BEFORE HEADING FARTHER NORTH. 


"A BULL FROG THAT WATCHES YOU PADDLE CLOSER, TOLERATES YOUR BUMPING HIS LOG AND THEN POSES FOR VERY GREEN CLOSE-UPS."


"TROUT STREAM TRILLIUM"

THIS IS RED TRILLIUM OR WAKE ROBIN - PHOTOGRAPHED BY A LOVELY LITTLE TROUT STREAM, THE GENEGANTSLET CREEK, NEAR SMITHVILLE FLATS, NY.


"A MARSH AT LOW TIDE - EARLY MORNING, HOT COFFEE, BLUE HERONS AND EGRETS ARE FISHING.""

THIS SALT MARSH IS PART OF THE WELLFLEET BAY SANCTUARY, RUN BY MASSACHUSETTS AUDUBON ON CAPE COD.


"CHICKADEES ON FINGERS, WITH VOICES QUITE TAME"

WE WERE WALKING A TRAIL NEAR TRURO, ON CAPE COD, WHEN WE NOTICED CHICKADEES FOLLOWING ALONG WITH US. "THEY'VE BEEN FED," I SAID TO MY WIFE, SO WE WENT HOME AND GOT SOME SEEDS. SURE ENOUGH, WHEN WE CAME BACK, OUR FRIENDS WERE THERE TO ACCEPT OUR OFFERINGS.
