Signs of Spring
Here in New Jersey the wind still roars, but in North Carolina, wildlife photographer Wes Deyton shares the Spring Peepers and Painted Turtles that are in view now that it’s warming up.
As you can see from the photo above, the Spring Peeper has a fully extended vocal sac for calling, but as Wes came in closer, it began to retract.
Last night Wes was able to trek into the woods and capture this fantastic video of a Spring Peeper calling.
Also at Harris Lake in North Carolina are Painted Turtles.
