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.

FISHER TAIL MARK

I have found both fisher and mink tracks consistently along frozen streams this winter. Due to some recent warm weather, most streams are partially open, and while mink tracks often disappear into the water, fisher tracks do so less frequently (their name is very misleading, as they rarely consume fish). While tracking a fisher along the ice today, however, I came upon a spot where it had climbed from the shallow open water onto the snow-covered ice, leaving a distinct line where its wet tail had dragged in the snow.

    I love this picture. Reminds me of the way the otter tails look in the snow in Ontario.
