I stopped by Ice Pond to see what frogs might be about and happened upon a dragonfly exoskeleton. Pretty cool. It's the first one I've ever found.
Here are the frogs that were near the edge of the pond. A special thank you to Alan B, one of the SOLF volunteers who pointed out the smaller ones to me on his way to the snake area.
Why does a frog this size still have a tail? It seems wrong.
And another one with a tail. Weird.
As I hiked through the woods, I saw 5-6 Mourning Cloaks, 2 Eastern Commas and 2 Little Wood Satyrs. Near the channel there were 2 Eastern Tailed-Blues.

On the way home I made a brief stop at Rural Cemetery on Middle Road, where there were several juvenile American Robins finding their own worms in the grass.
