Amazing how a little time can change your perspective. Today I revisited a stand of massive white pines I had come across over the winter not long after moving up to the Adirondacks. But I couldn’t believe I was in the same stand today! The trees were so much smaller than I remembered. I guess I’ve been really spoiled lately with all the big guys I’ve been measuring. Anyway, here are a few photos from the day I figured I’d share:

A geometrid moth (I think) resting on a disappointingly tiny white pine trunk.

Pearly everlasting. Found in dry fields, roadsides, and in this case, under a powerline.

Goldenrod . . . species to be determined.

Have a great night!
