Kermit the Bullfrog in a Pond at the Sourland Mountain Preserve. Image taken with a Nikon 1 V2 camera + FT1 + 70-300 mm VR lens (ISO 800, 300 mm, f/5.6, 1/40 sec). [FOV Equivalent to ~ 810 mm on a 35 mm image sensor]
I stopped at the nearby Sourland Mountain Preserve to see if any butterflies have arrived. I only found some really tiny butterflies (or are they moths?). While walking down the gas line trail, I noticed a deer watching me from the bushes. It looks like she has a wound on her head between the eyes that was covered with flies. Back home, there was a wary groundhog, a bull frog in my pond, and a young fawn going through my wildflower garden eating the buds before they can bloom.
