This is a photo of a foggy inland lake in Michigan. I took this photo a few years ago, right now this same lake still has snow on it.

This butterfly is called the Northern Pearly Eye and it is a common butterfly in northern Michigan this time of year. It is brown with black spots, and can easily be confused with other small spotted butterflies. The Northern Pearly Eye is a bit larger than most, and often has an erratic flight high in the air. Consult a butterfly guidebook in order to tell all the different species apart.
This is a spring and winter view of the same lake in Michigan. This time of year the lake is starting to thaw, and the different types of birds will soon be back. The little specks in the distance in the top photo are actually ducks.
I am re-posting some scenes of an ice covered lake in Michigan.
This is a photo I took some years ago of a lake in Michigan. It was a beautiful sunny day, with just a few clouds in the sky. There is a small campground by the lake, and there are often ducks and geese as well.
This is a Mallard Duck on Grand Traverse Bay in Traverse City, MI. It was a calm and peaceful day in the early evening, and I just saw this duck sitting in the water, and thought it would make a good picture.
This is a picture of leaves frozen in the ice of an inland lake in Michigan. It is the same lake in the photo Pine Tree by Frozen Lake . I think its really interesting the way the leaves got stuck in the ice like this, I’ve never quite seen it this way before, but we had an early freeze last year.
This is a photo of a mostly frozen inland lake in Michigan. There is a white pine tree overlooking the lake. This photo was taken last year, as we are having rather warm temperatures this year.
This is another photo of a foggy lake in Michigan. There is a small island in the lake that you can see straight ahead in the distance, through the fog.
This is picture of a foggy lake in Michigan, with mallard ducks in the distance.
This is a continuation of yesterday’s theme, taken from the same spot on the same lake, on a different day. Here the sky was very overcast and the sun was almost done setting, but some of the sun managed to peek out under the clouds.
This is a photo of a winter sunset on a lake in Michigan, taken a few years ago.
This is a photo of the snow on a lake in Michigan, taken in January. It was very sunny, but windy!
Icy Fall Lake, part2
This is a continuation of Icy Fall Lake from last week. These are some additonal shots of a different section of the lake.
These pictures were taken in Michigan last fall when we had an early snowfall. It was very windy, and the snow was blown in rather interesting patterns around the lake.
Snow on Pine Tree, Winter Lake
This is a picture of a lake in Michigan after a snowstorm. There is so much heavy snow on the pine tree, that it has bent the tree over. Click on the image to see full size.
Sailboat on Michigan Lake
This is a lake in Michigan that has a lot of birds like ducks and geese. There is also a campsite, but no boat launch. If you bring a boat, it needs to be carry in only, so you need to bring something that you can carry down a hill and back up, like a canoe or kayak. The sailboat probably belongs to people who live on the lake. Also, the campsite is very rustic (no electricity, pump your own water) so you have to like that sort of thing!
