Ponds

Northeastern Connecticut is dotted with small ponds, lakes and reservoirs. Now that we are fully into “brown” season we explored a few last week and were rewarded with smooth water and reflections. The evergreens in the photo above were the most colorful thing around. We didn’t see much for wildlife this December day, either.

This is either an inactive beaver lodge or the residents have tucked in for the winter.

One squirrel surveyed the grounds at James L. Goodwin State Forest at the edge of Pine Acres Lake.

Hampton Reservoir and the pond at Brown Hill Marsh were as smooth as a mirror, with puffy cloud reflections. (Click to enlarge photo or view as slide show.)
