City Daily Photo Theme Day: No Swimming, Campfires or Camping at May Pond

May Pond, directly over the ridge from my house, is the source of water for the Village of Barton. I am in Barton Town, so I have a well. The only NO signs I could think of are here at the pond. Below is another NO sign at the pond: No invasive species are to be transported into the pond or you are subject to a fine of up to $1,000. While Grandson Wingnut and I were there (with Scout the Dog), I took other photos to show you the area.

Lilly pads on a quiet section of the pond. Horrible glare.

A brown damselfly. I had no time to identify these damsel and dragon flies and butterflies. I will work on the identifications this week and update the post.

Red Clover (the Vermont State Flower)


Moth. See the coiled proboscis?

Old outlet of the pond to May Brook, which flows past my house and has at least four beaver dams as it flows to Crystal Lake.
