I was out with a friend collecting Gyrinidae (or whirligig beetles - click here to see a close-up of one) when my husband, Bruce Mazlish, took these pictures, as we rowed from the middle of the Little Pond toward its north end.

In December I returned to the same pond and took pictures of an ice-fishing party, following them toward the north end of the pond, where the beavers have had a lodge for at least 50 years. (The last photo in the grouping, "Boats and Birds," shows a view of the Little Pond from the north, looking over it to the ocean and two islands beyond. It was taken from the top of a hill at the end point of the New Path that is featured in the Lichens collections.)
