WOOD FROG, DEXTER TOWNSHIP, WASHTENAW COUNTY, MICHIGAN, 16 APRIL 2019

www.flickr.com/photos/snow-shadow/
BEFORE THE CANOPY LEAFS OUT, SOMETIMES BEFORE THE VERNAL POOLS ARE COMPLETELY ICE FREE, WOOD FROGS IN CHORUS CLUCK AND QUACK IN DUCK-LIKE TONES. THE WOOD FROG RANGES FARTHER NORTH THAN ANY OTHER NORTH AMERICAN AMPHIBIAN, REACHING THE ARCTIC COAST IN CANADA’S NORTHWEST TERRITORIES AND YUKON TERRITORY. IT HAS THE AMAZING ABILITY TO FREEZE SOLID IN WINTER, ONLY TO THAW OUT AND RE-ANIMATE IN SPRING.

Japanese Macaque, Nagano Prefecture, Japan, Yamanouchi--Jigokudani (Hot Springs / Snow Monkey Park), 14 February 2019

More images.
Sometimes called Snow Monkeys, these are the northernmost wild population of non-human primates in the world. Their thick fur allows them to tolerate winter temperatures as low as -20° C. Here a female is cradling her infant at the edge of a hot spring. Two subspecies have been described. These are the nominate race found on the main islands. Another race characterized by brown fur and smaller size is restricted to the island of Yakushima. Canon PowerShot SX60.

WHILE MAGGIE AND I WERE COUNTING STAGING WATERFOWL, A COYOTE EMERGED FROM THE BRUSH OF THE OPPOSITE SHORELINE AND WALKED ONTO A FROZEN PORTION OF THE LAKE. SOME CANADA GEESE FLEW TO OPEN WATER, OTHERS MAINTAINED A SAFE DISTANCE ON THE ICE. THE COYOTE CONTINUED WALKING WITH EYES COYLY ASKANCE, NEVERTHELESS FULLY ALERT FOR A POTENTIAL MEAL, A CRIPPLED GOOSE PERHAPS.
