About Today’s Photo:
We kayaked onto Lake Champlain from the Lewis Creek put-in yesterday morning. The winds were blowing at good clip out of the west on the broad lake so we took some shelter by paddling up Little Otter Creek. Water lilies were in full bloom along the shallows (of which there’s a lot as the Lake Champlain water level is quite low—at 95′ today). As I framed this shot, I noticed the spider lurking in the leaves. A quick look in my nature guides identified it as a six-spotted fishing spider.
