Around the Cary Institute and up the creek!
Two friends and I spent part of Saturday walking along Wappinger Creek and around the Cary Institute grounds. We found green frogs, painted turtles, some newts and enjoyed the beautiful weather, before the heat and humidity came back today. Thanks for a fun time and the hand modeling for the photos Jay and Katie!
This young painted turtle could really tuck tight into his shell!
Duckweed is the smallest flowering plant in the world! Jay's hand shows how thick the pond was with duck weed, it provided great cover for the frogs and turtles.
