FIRST SURVEY POST OF SEASON 2020 … ON OUR NEW SITE!
June 20, 2020 — Zone #7
On 6/19 I watched a webinar set up by LSM (Lake Stewards of Maine) on Metaphyton (aka Filamentous Algae.) Don posted that in our library.
Photos are included:
#1 A small clump of water shields around which was a combination of green Filamentous Algae, a strand of fish eggs in a milky white substance called “milt” holding them together, a waterlogged dragonfly next to eggs it had apparently laid and now progressing to different larvae stages and then, the treasure, a really teeny red water mite (!) floating along on the edge of it.
#2 GPS photo of Aquatic Moss, adhered to a rock and right next to it was Freshwater Sponge, adhered to another rock.
