During a walk in a local park I came upon this interesting and somewhat distressing pattern of what appeared to be soap froth. It looked to me very much like the white swirls a Barista would use to decorate a fancy cup of coffee. The creek was slowly pouring over a log creating this delicate pattern. As I walked I started to think about some of the species introduced here that have really flourished.
Invasive species here to stay?
Another recent addition is the American Bullfrog. They are big and hungry. I managed to get close for this photo but it is hard to judge the size. They were being raised in the southern United States for the meat in their legs. After a few of these wily rascals escaped they have spread north through creeks and wetlands dislodging native species. These critters have a really loud croak. Do people have them for pets?Let's all think before we ditch feather, fur, shell, fin and leaf......and whatever I missed.
