What Is That? A Series about Local Wildlife

We are Carolyn and Bruce Waddell, both retired from the federal public service.  In preparation for retirement, we bought a cottage on White Lake where we now live eight months of the year.  We have a canoe and kayaks and spend long hours on the lake, enjoying nature and photographing the wildlife.  Often, we are surprised to look at the resulting pictures on our desktop and realize we do not know exactly what that animal is … is it a crow or a raven, a toad or a frog, a turtle or an alligator?  This has led to long, interesting hours of research to identify what we have captured … on camera.
