I missed out on the recent lunar eclipse, but I did manage to venture out this week to photograph the full moon in it’s eerie forest glory. I was mesmerized by the glow of the moon and the stark silhouettes of the pines and oakes and beeches. It was a relatively quiet night. Just a few peepers were calling from across the pond and in vernal pools nearby.

Then, on Tuesday night, we wandered through the dark and the rain on a search for salamanders and frogs on what turned out to be a pretty exciting night. I didn’t get to see the migrating salamanders, but I did sneak up on a vernal pool and record the raucous sounds of wood frogs and the rain. We still have a few more cool nights ahead, but the spring forest is coming alive!
