Up in Lake County today, drove up with my son this afternoon. The weather is beautiful here, cooler than back at home, I think, which is good. It’s starting to get a bit warm for me. Apparently, there have been turtles galore over the past few days, so we should be busy at the field site this afternoon. Which is good, it will make the time pass quickly. I just hope we don’t end up being out there until some ridiculously late hour tonight. We’ll see.
Watched a pair of orioles chase away a crow. They must have a nest right near our campsite. The orioles are absolutely gorgeous, orange and yellow and black.
Will be off to the field site shortly, so I guess I’ll wrap this up. Feeling a bit out of sorts . . . hopefully being out with the turtles will cheer me up.
Here are a few photos from the first couple of weeks of the field season, including a Banana Slug Club pic. 🙂
