Erythronium americanum


The trout lily or dogtooth violet is almost invisible in the woods by Lake Kittamaqundi -- but how showy it is once noticed.

The Center of the Heron Universe


We are not far from it here, but the herons need their privacy now. I'll just post these recent snapshots taken on Lake Kittamaqundi.

Photos on Lake K. today: the osprey again; the paddle boats of spring



The osprey was observed over Lake Kittamaqundi again today. Around 5:00pm it was fishing quite successfully. It was probably lurking in that tall tree again as I snapped another view of the north end, but I didn't see it until I was returning along the path from the lakefront.


One of the black squirrels that hangs around the woods at the south end, snapped a couple of weekends ago.
