Stopping at the Lodge

Canada Geese are often seen near beaver lodges in the early Spring. The activity of the beavers leads to earlier thawing of the ice, providing the geese with a welcome habitat and food resources. This is an example of a symbiotic relationship in nature.

This photo blog features the seasonal changes in nature observed in my own backyard and a variety of local environments. The Wachusett Meadow Audubon Sanctuary in Princeton, MA is often highlighted as a model for the positive effects a small nature preserve can have on the larger environment and the local community. Local sites of historical, cultural and recreational interest are spotlighted as well. All photographs were taken by me. Thank you so much for visiting.

  3. How interesting that the activities of the beaver have a beneficial effect on other species such as the geese. As others have commented the light in these photos is particularly lovely.

    1. Thanks so much. Beavers are beneficial, but also a bit of a trial. Their lodges change the water flow up and down stream. I visit them often in the summer evenings. Such fun to watch!
