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.

WINTER’S  TOLL

Most winters provide us with a white blanket of snow on which we can easily find signs of animals, including tracks, wing prints, scat, tunnels, etc. These signs are not so easy to detect once the snow melts; however, early spring is a good time to look for the remains of animals that died during the winter and were buried in the snow. Some of these have not had a chance yet to be recycled by rodents and scavengers. So far this spring has revealed to me the carcasses of white-tailed deer, a red fox, gray squirrel and the pictured raccoon. Always the collector, I find it can be a bonanza for the retrieval of skulls and bacula.

    The harsh reality of life. It has it’s own beauty!

    • Hi Sally! Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my photos, etc. How are you? Tell me about the land you inherited and catch me up on your life, please! I think of you often, and wish we were closer. Mary
