Hey, all you cell phone viewers! I've talked with several of you that have never seen this site on a wider screen. You might be missing something. The viewers I've talked with had never seen anything but this page. There's more here! There is an album of images so far, a blog with more images and info, and a second album of images from Ives Fen Preserve.
