Cooler, drier weather has allowed us to venture into the woods for some of our walks. On a very still morning, parts of the lake looked like a reflecting pool.
We had a little taste of Fall last week, which I really did not mind, as the mosquitoes and deer fly were less active, allowing me to work outside in peace.
I often come across a toad in or near my barn, and the cats, fortunately do not seem to bother them. This fine specimen has to be the biggest one I have ever seen!
The numbers on the ruler don’t show up well in the photo, but he measured almost six inches long.
