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

Here I’ll be sharing some photographs I’ve recently taken as well as some of my favorites 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.

FEMALE  AND  MALE  WOOD  FROG   SIZE  DISCREPANCY

At the risk of boring readers by featuring wood frogs two days in a row, I had to share a photograph I took this morning of an egg-laden female wood frog (on left in photograph) and a male wood frog (on right) – look at the difference in size! Yet unclasping his arms from under her chin as he lay on top of her, in order to photograph them separately, was a Herculean task. And yes, I felt guilty interrupting their amorous activity, but believe me, they resumed it as soon as they had the chance!
