My original plan for today was to go do some "spring cleaning" at several native pollinator gardens. The snow and ice of the last few days ruined that plan for me.
Instead, the ice and today's clear skies offered up a photography opportunity. These photos were all taken in the area around the conservation district office this afternoon. As the sun warms the branches, the ice is quickly dropping off.
Despite this weather setback, Spring is here to stay. While taking these photos, I could hear Western Chorus Frogs (Pseudacris triseriata triseriata) calling from a nearby wetland.
