As we approach a new year, I’m looking back on 2013. This is one of my favorite photos of the year. Harry and I were hiking on a trail near the Cumberland River last April when I spotted this unusual crawdad (crayfish). I’ve never seen one this colorful before.
The crawdad seemed to be trying its best to look quite fierce. Although it was small, I did not try to pick it up!
I’ve enjoyed sharing my discoveries in 2013, and I look forward to seeing what nature has in store this year. Happy New Year and best wishes for 2014.
