It was a beautiful day on 12/12 – and so, spontaneously, we (at Audubon) decided to take a hike in celebration of all the twelves. We put out a call to the Spontaneous on Facebook, which was answered by Bob and Emily… and then off we went on an Audubon Walk-About.

We took the 2.2 mile “Yellow” trail loop that goes all the way around Big Pond.

Emily stopped to read about the deer exclosure.

I’m not sure any of my photos did justice to the intense blue reflected in the ponds.

In this picture, Katie is taking MORE photos of the Bald Eagles we saw.

Katie Finch took this photo from the Big Pond embankment.

Bald Eagle Eating in Big Pond
And I photographed Katie as she took this photo of one of the eagles eating. I love the muskrat lodge behind, too.

Colors were sometimes subtle and sometimes intense. See the Red Osier Dogwood here? And why is the Duckweed still floating in the ponds in December? Weird weather!
