Don Torino has a great post -- a column, really -- on the Meadowblog. All about birds and nature and stories.
A great read. Wish I'd written it. And you can read it here.
I wish I had a quarter for every time I've seen one do that.
Last week, I saw two baby Snapping Turtles on the path in the Celery Farm. Go figure.
Saw this hungry little caterpillar near the CF a little while back.
Can anyone I.D. it? I can make a vague guess.
I realized the photo wasn't the most helpful, but that was the hand I was dealt. It reminded me of some Tussock Moth caterpillars I'd seen, probably in the Meadowlands.
The milkweed is blooming (below), and though we saw few butterflies yesterday, Fred thinks they'll start showing up in greater numbers in two or three weeks.
I love Fred's Celery Farm cap. I do not think he's willing to sell it.
