On the way to Kokadjo, perhaps on Tussle Brook, photographer Dave Small captured several juvenile American black ducks with his lens. He emailed the image to the Maine-birds google list, and one woman responded, “It looks like it just got out of the dryer!” What a perfect description.

The northern pearly eye butterfly and blue darner dragonfly were captured on a hike to Schoodic Head on Saturday, Aug. 13.

The white-tailed deer mother and two yearlings were caught in the camera’s view while hesitating to cross the freshly paved bicycle path at the University of Maine.
