Another walk in the woods

Today, the Eagle-Eyed Scientist and I hiked at Southwick Beach State Park. We saw several orioles, but they were too quick for me to get a good picture.



It looks as though this pair of geese has staked out their territory.


I love these little woodland violets.


The forest floor was blanketed with trilliums - mostly white trilliums, but a few had tinges of pink.


The mystery of the day: How did this mammalian pelvis end up beside the trail? We think it belonged to a deer, but where did the rest of it go?

It's creepy and beautiful at the same time. As a bonus, the Eagle-Eyed Scientist was able to see the socket part of a ball-and-socket joint.
