Sometimes the babies grow in groups.  Notice the water that fills the pitchers.

This is what the pitcher babies look like from the long view.

Wild cranberries were starting to ripen all over the place, I can't wait until Thanksgiving!

As many of you know, wood ducks are very shy and very skiddish so David and I had to stay far away in order to keep them from disappearing.  I’m up to 100x zoom on my SX50 which is 50 optical and 50 digital.  A bit shakey but still kinda fun.
And of course, here are some pics of the lilies of Lily Pond:lily w leaf 2

About John Body

I live in Western Massachusetts, in the incredibly beautiful Connecticut River Valley. I've been hiking, kayaking, and tracking wildlife throughout the Valley with lots of photos and videos that people may like to see. Whenever I travel I also take my cameras just in case I see great scenery or wildlife. My passion is wildlife conservation so I try to attend wildlife workshops and land preservation events (Habitat, Habitat, Habitat!). When I get a chance, I videotape the experts, they're just so knowledgeable and inspiring. I hope you enjoy my posts.
