I stopped south of Perth Road on Perth Road to photograph this beautiful narrow lake without a name (which I’m going to call Fire Access Road Lake as it has a water pumping station for fire trucks).

It’s the first mayfly of the year (and it’s not yet May).

We had a successful work party at Murial’s Marsh today and saw tree sparrows, bloodroot, a snapping turtle and this toad, hanging out in the sunshine.

Our adventures this afternoon first led us to Potts Island in Murray Marsh (where we saw a snapping turtle) and then to Presqui’ile where we enjoyed the Marsh Boardwalk trail and saw a Caspian tern diving into a pond.

This sewing project, using stiff nitex mesh, was challenging in this location; the mesh kept pressing up against my thread racks and knocking things off and there wasn’t enough room on the table. But it I got it done…
