Photopost: Wachusett Meadow


For Father’s Day this year, we once again visited one of the most beautiful places on earth, Wachusett Meadow Wildlife Sanctuary in Princeton, MA.  I guess it’s a tradition now.

We had no idea what these red bumps were so we showed this picture to the naturalist. He believes it’s the remains of a slime mold.

    Nice photos. Especially like the last one. I was admiring the contemplative nature of the reflections of the leaves in the water before I read the caption. Hadn’t even noticed the frog.

    I wondered about the red things — they look like insect eggs, to me. But I don’t know your area (nor do I know any insects that lay red eggs!).
