I headed to Trent Campus in the hopes of filming some calling Eastern American Toads for a documentary I’m making; Ruby of the North. As I got into the water there were only a few Northern Leopard Frogs calling but two or three Eastern American Toads started calling as well. The toads were short lived as they called in full force for only a few seconds with long intervals of nothing. All the toads were deep in the vegetation where I dared not go so to avoid crushing any animals. I did manage to get some habitat shots and underwater videos of the wetland however. Because Ranavirus has been found in the wetland I disinfected my gear with a betadine solution and while everything was drying I walked over to my snake spot where I managed to find two Eastern Milk Snakes and, heading back; two White-Tailed Deer.
I'm Mac Marzolini and I created this blog for a variety of reasons, the first of course is to open a window into what is happening in my life (cause my grandmother reads this), but also to help myself catalogue some of my favorite photos from my many adventures.
