Woke up to a still, cool morning in the high 30’s
Saw a very interesting salamander early in today’s walk
I ran across two more chestnut trees that were over 20 feet tall and had dropped chestnuts
Here’s some more from yesterday and today
Looks like a Spotted Salamander. Great to see chestnut husks. The trees will die to the roots after growing a nut crop. Last gasp before the blight kills the above ground part of the chestnut.
The salamander is beautiful! We have been trying to find a day with fluffy clouds to enter a photo contest (for our new lamp posts). Now I know where all of the fluffy clouds are! Your photos are stunning!
