Spring Peepers

After a twenty-five year residence in Interior Alaska, I really missed the little things about life in the Lower 48. One of those little details are the frogs, in particular the peepers. As of late, walking about the woods in the evening has been a choral treat in the loudest cacophony of neekerbreekers I've ever heard.
Relatedly, Gov. LePage has his salivating sights set on rolling back environmental regulations that protect the habitat for these indicator species: legislation is pending that will pave over more of Maine's vernal ponds.
