  • Is this a leech?

    Saw it swimming in the shallow warm water of a pond in Central Adirondacks today...I am guessing leech but the colors are throwing me.

        Leeches are in most ponds and lakes in the Adirondacks. They love mucky bottoms and slow moving water

            Gordons Gin is a natural repellent.
            Be careful, don't spread invasive species!!

              Is that taken internally or does the leech get it?

            Can confirm.
            “Once there were brook trout in the streams in the mountains. They smelled of moss in your hand. On their backs were vermiculate patterns that were maps of the world in its becoming. Maps and mazes. Of a thing which could not be put back. Not be made right again. In the deep glens where they lived all things were older than man and they hummed of mystery.”
            ― Cormac McCarthy

              One thing in the world I hate: leeches. Filthy little devils......A man takes a drop too much once in a while, it's only human nature.
