Snow 10.30.20

First snow of the season, a good month away from the start of Winter. We expected a frost and harvested our garden the day before. We were caught off gaurd, myself a bit grumpily, by the snow. We took a short walk around the northern edge of Spot Pond in the Middlesex Fells.

Fewer birds out today with the weather. The mallards we saw were easily spooked. The cormorants were doing their usual thing, though these guys might be continuing their southern migration soon.

Looking forward to understanding lichen better. Such a weird combination of organisms.

Miscellaneous. I did enjoy working on the frozen droplet shot. Will have plenty more opportunities to try variations.
