Gettin’ a real soakin’ at the park

The skies are so dark, the streetlights are still on, and so there ain’t gonna be no new pictures today.

Instead, I’m sure all the critters at the pond will be thrilled to have the day off for a change.

Anyway, just to tide you over, here are a couple images from Estabrook that didn’t make the front page:

That’s sweet woodruff (aka Galium odorata or sweet-scented bedstraw),
here’s a catbird busy collecting nesting material by the pond,

and here’s a common yellowthroat also collecting nesting material, I can only presume, down by  the river.

He’s got big plans for that 2×4, I’m sure.

I’ll toss a couple more b-reel shots online at
