We went exploring in the creek that runs along the edge of our neighborhood today.
"I always knew one day I'd find treasure in this creek!"
(He was so excited to find a nasty leather coin pouch with five corroded dimes in it.)
We saw three snakes today (all Northern Water Snakes). This is the only one that stayed still long enough for us to observe well; it was about 2.5 feet long.
When I saw this worm in the water, I first thought it was an artificial fishing worm. When I realized it was alive, I pulled it out for closer inspection. It was huge--about 8" long!
Have you visited any creeks this spring?
