On this beautiful April morning, here are a few shots from our recent walks with naturalist Billy Helprin of the Maine Coast Heritage Trust.
Oops--forgot to put the caption in. This is just a close-up of cool-looking moss.
We watched a pair of gorgeous bufflehead ducks through our binoculars...but I didn't have a camera with a strong telephoto lens, so no picture. Sorry.
If you'd been with us, you'd have stepped carefully around the sprouts of plants called sensitive ferns and helped us dissect (with a stick) animal scat that included the sticker from an apple, some bird seed, a large beetle-like insect and a lot of smooth material that may have been part of a sheet of plastic. We're guessing the critter was a trash- and compost-raiding raccoon.
