    Spent the last two days out hiking all the trails around Sterling Nature Center here in NY, it has been absolutely gorgeous!

    All the garter snakes one could ask for,I literally sat on a hillside and counted 43 garters, it was amazing to just sit there and observe them as they in turn were observing me,several came right up to inspect me :)

    Others that I was able to observe include frogs, chipmunks, geese, blue heron, blue jays (chased me!)and in a pool I counted 8 salamanders!

    Sounds like a great couple of days! Wonderful photos, thanks for sharing :)

    Today it went up to 27 celsius, nearly all the snow is melted, I've been in and out all day to load up on that natural vitamin D that I've been lacking for a few months. I was going to bring out Hannibal (BD) but she is still in her winter sleep, hopefully she will wake up soon.

    I went off the "normal" trails, the ones I took were not well traveled and took me deep into the wetlands, forest areas and vernal pools. I went out to get away from people, and every time I went to go on one of the well traveled paths there always seemed to be someone loud and obnoxious or someone with their dog running around barking...not a good way to observe nature :)
