I changed the title of this post to Goshen Pond Images. The pond is a favorite subject of mine. I just moved to Waterford Township late last year, and it's very close to my house. Such a beautiful place to take pictures. This is a Slaty Skimmer dragonfly taken at the pond this summer. Feel free to add more Goshen Pond photos!

Maria, did you run that Rhododendron through a plant key? Our local Rhododendron is Rhododendron viscosum. If it is atlanticum, I'd love to see it.

Maria,

Bob is the person to show it to if you are correct.

Yes, I did. I used PlantSnap and that's what it came up with. I think the app does an educated guess so it might not be accurate. You take a picture of a plant, and it tries to identify it from the picture. I found this plant among some bushes along the bank of Goshen Pond. I took it a couple months ago so I'm not sure if it's still blooming. If I recall correctly, it was toward the beaver dam if you are walking along the pond from the parking area.

I took a picture of this little guy a couple months ago. Very tiny toad. I almost stepped on it. My lens cap is next to him for scale. I haven't had any luck identifying the species. Does anyone know? Is it a Fowler's toad?
