5/28/13 Marsh Island
A beautiful day. Some things to attend to in the morning so we went to the nearby Marsh Island area. We started out from Hillside Ave. so Kelley would get the pond but wanted to do the drier trail from the end of Penobscot- so after the pond we drove over to the other trail head. Kelley was able to find water on the second trail too. A friend walked with us so I was doing more talking than picture taking. I have also gone back to my bigger camera ( now that I don't have to keep the camera under my coat) and I found I had to relearn some things and managed to get quite a few pictures out of focus. On the plus side there were insects and flowers so maybe winter is gone for this year.
I don't know this beetle
I think this is a Mourning Cloak
The river was unusually high and this usually small marshy area was quite large.
A very pleasant walk on a beautiful day. 2 1/4 hours
