Hello friends! The free photo of the day for this, the final day of a lovely June, hails from the same month in 2012. The main subject is this beautiful marsh ecosystem, but the beaver or muskrat lodge at center right is a nice bonus. I camped out for awhile on a grassy inlet hoping to get a good shot of the lodge’s occupant but to no avail. Riparian zones (the interface between land and a river or stream) are the preferred habitat for beavers so this is probably a muskrat lodge, though.
Thank you to the those who have recently donated to my nursing school campaign – it’s so edifying to have one’s work recognized as worthy of remuneration. Speaking of paid gigs, look for my work in The Willimantic Chronicle in the future – I’ve just been hired as one of their part-time photographers!
If you enjoy these free photos – which are great for books, church bulletins, videos, and other blogs – do consider making a contribution. Have a great day!
