Welcome to a photographic journey through the fields, woods, and marshes of New England

Here I’ll be sharing some of my favorite photographs from my forthcoming book Naturally Curious. I’ll be updating my blog periodically with new images, new stories, and more glimpses of New England in all seasons.

PORCUPINE DEN RENOVATIONS

I revisited an old porcupine den today which has been unoccupied since last winter, and found that someone had been doing some renovations on it. Fresh porcupine scat on the top of the snow alerted me to recent activity, and looking up I saw that a portion of the edge of the cavity’s opening had been gnawed on, leaving a bright strip of debarked wood. No-one was home at the time of my visit, but I shall keep a close eye on it.
