The Last Leg, Old Saybrook, CT

November 30, 2017

Here’s one from the article that captures the gestalt of the whole day nicely – coming into the barnyard for the drop off – the day’s work nearly done, for the oxen anyway.

Team Of Six Article

November 29, 2017

The November 2017 issue of INK magazine carried my article, Team of Six, which I will share in its entirety as soon as the publisher sends off the PDF version. It’s a six page spread, with sixteen photographs in all. For now, you can still get the issue around the area (free!), and see some of the photographs from my visit to Earl’s farm here.

ADDENDUM: full PDF can now be found here.

Evidence, Chesterfield, NH

October 11, 2017

We share our home on this earth with a vast number of creatures large and small,* who occupy all sorts of ecological niches around us.

Beavers – that’s their handiwork above – favor streams and marshes, and are second only to man for their ability to manipulate the environment.** They’re mostly nocturnal animals, though you might see one swimming around a pond in the late afternoon. More info on these mammals here.

This fallen white birch was probably 20 feet from a marsh, and 30 feet of so from a stream.

* The Vedas, the most ancient of Hindu scriptures, describe 8.4 million species of life on the planet.

Bobcat, Old Saybrook, CT

August 7, 2017

Pretty relaxed all in all.

I first saw this animal leisurely walking away from me, and based on its size, thought it was a fox. The profile (and the bobbed tail in another photo) positively ID’ed it as a bobcat, the first one I’ve ever seen. One like this was seen about 3 miles away recently; females are known to have a territory of about 5 square miles, males about 30. Rabbits are their main prey, and there happen to be a lot in the neighborhood this year. A cropped version of a shot taken a few seconds before follows above.
