Stream Sampling

Our first stream sampling event of the season. I was surprised to see that the stream was somewhat low, given that we have had quite a bit of rain this spring. On the other hand, the mosquitos were quite voracious.

Old Scarback

I was wonderng when old Scarback was going to show himself. My first sighting of the year. I normally see him a bit earlier in the spring, but it has been unseasonably cool this year. I was digging a hole in the perennial bed to plant an apple tree and there he was.
