I know that there is a small pond in this preserve, and I hoped to catch a glimpse of some ducks or geese. I did find two geese on the opposite side of the pond. They were both sleeping or resting. I took some photos, but didn't think they were as good as this one. I plan on returning at various times to see if they will nest, and raise their young on this pond.
There is also a large bog in the Preserve. The Skunk Cabbage is pushing it's way through the moss all through the wet areas. It seems to have an alien look to it in the early stages.
- Geese are an interesting subject. I can easily go to areas where they are familiar with people, and get very close to photograph them. Somehow I find it more special to find them in remote areas. It's much more difficult to take great photos of them, but somehow it seems more natural.
- Like a lot of places the von Engeln Preserve takes on a different look at different times of the year. It's worth returning time and time again, and look for the changes.
