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.

COYOTE PACK TRACKS

It being the peak of the coyote breeding season, finding their sign, particularly scat and urine marking, is not difficult.

In this case, the tracks covered the frozen stream and surrounding bottom lands of an abandoned beaver pond in central Vermont. Oh, to have been a witness to this canid gathering!
