Pollinators Galore

Yesterday was the final day of 2019’s National Pollinator Week.  While the power was out at our cabin, I took a morning stroll down one of Bent Tree’s trails, and came across a patch of blooming Downy False-foxglove that was literally buzzing with pollinators.  Look closely at the photo above to see a pollen basket on the bee.

New signs, reflecting the amended Lake & Wildlife Rules approved by the Board last September, are now in place around Lake Tamarack.  The lake was restocked last month with 10,000 small bream as a food supply for the bass (which were reported to be overpopulated and undersized).

Hole 7 Turtles

Yesterday’s post mentioned that I went to play golf on Monday, in between fawn photo shoots.  The photo below was taken during that round of golf, at the pond on Hole 7.  Click here for a related previous post (from almost one year ago) that explains why my golf game is not so great.

Let Sleeping Fawns Lie

Let awake ones lie, too.  Young fawns are left alone for hours, but the mother will be back.  Check back tomorrow for more photos of this fawn and the return of its mother, all taken yesterday in Bent Tree over the course of about 10 hours.

Jack-in-the-Pulpit

Jack-in-the-pulpits were abundant in Bent Tree this spring.  The photo below was taken in early May.  Click here to link to a post from 7 years ago, when there were Jack-in-the-pulpits aplenty.  That post gives more information about the plant and what to look for.
