Image of a bullfrog at the Sourland Mountain Preserve near my home in New Jersey. I found this when going back are reviewing some old images. I realized that it was a very productive day, and that I have a lot of other images from the day that I should publish — wildflowers, butterflies, bees, and dragonflies. I need to check the location out this weekend to see what is present this year.
Canada goose flapping its wings. Many of the Canada geese no longer migrate, but rather spend their winter here in New Jersey. Every fall and spring they join up and fly in circles for a couple of weeks ending up where they started. Image taken with a Nikon D300 camera and 18-200 mm VR lens.
Great Blue Heron and a pair of Mallard Ducks in the pond at the nearby Sourland Mountain Preserve. I guess they decided to spend the winter here rather than in Florida. Some years this pond freezes over.
