Default Its been a while

Well it been a while since I have posted anything so I thought I'd share these pics taken recently. Its been a crazy summer with seasonal work.

Just went through the forum and love all the dragonfly pics. Its not easy getting close to them.

The Diamond Back Terrapin is doing well and getting a lot of attention from outside the park. Other nature centers have gotten wind that we have ours and know we close in Sept. and want it saying its not ready to released to the wild or that it can't be released and must stay in captivity. It is growing.

Tiniest frog I have ever seen (Macro). Probably a spring peeper.

Beautiful tadpole need ID'ing pic not so great but the tadpole is what is special.

Just a snail close up Macro. I like the pattern on the shell.

Hope everyone is well

Welcome back Chris and great to see that your nature center buddies are doing well! I hope you don't get hit too badly by the heatwave.

These are some of the cutest little creatures I've seen, well captured!! Is that frog full gown? As for the tadpole, the closest thing I can find is a gray tree frog tadpole. It's a pretty little thing! http://www.sciencephoto.com/media/378083/enlarge

Wow!!

Thanks for the kind comments. They put wind in my sails.

The frog must have just emerged from the vernal pool from being a tadpole; it is about half the size of my pinky-fingernail. And I was thinking the same about the treefrog tadpole.

Here is a picture of the vernal pool. Its an unique environment as it has a semi sandy bottom and is quite clear.
