Now that I've posted all my bird photographs on my in-progress photo gallery site, I'm now scrolling through every digital photograph I've taken, sorting them into collections in Lightroom. I came across this ultra-closeup of one of the spreadwing damselflies I came across in Maine.

Favorite Photos from Spring Break in Southwest Florida
Two weeks ago, we were wrapping up our spring break trip to Bonita Springs.  With trips to Corkscrew Swamp and Barefoot Beach, usually followed by afternoon trips to the pool, the boys were exhausted.  Here are a few of my favorite photographs from the trip...

We Made it Through the Birthdays
We've made it through a busy stretch of the year we like to call "the birthdays". It all begins February 16, where I add one more year to my age, along with my mom. Then on the 25th comes Brody, who turned five this year. Isn't that crazy? And this year...

Sanibel Island Lighthouse and Point Ybel
After two days of constant rain, which some some parts of southwest Florida receive nearly four inches of rain, and then a day of cloudy and cold conditions, my last day on Sanibel proved to be perfect weather.  My Mom and I left Bonita Springs, where her a...

Southwest Florida Bird Highlights - The First Four Days
With the crazy El Nino weather, my time in Florida, five days including travel days, all three of my full days had rain, clouds, and seasonably cool temperatures.  But I can't complain.  Yes, I wasn't prepared for ankle to knee high water on several of the ...

Birding at the Racetrack
Megan and I use an incentive system for the boys. When they do chores, behave well, etc., they get a marble placed in a mason jar.  When the jar is full, they get a reward. Weston has been wanting to go try the go-karts for a long time, and finally we had a...
Megan and I use an incentive system for the boys. When they do chores, behave well, etc., they get a marble placed in a mason jar. When the jar is full, they get a reward. Weston has been wanting to go try the go-karts for a long time, and finally we had a perfect day for it. He had a blast.

At the beginning of the year, I came to this realization that the body of my work was sitting on my hard drive, very difficult to access. Yes, this blog is a record of my natural history activities since the mid-2000's, but it's sequential- not well organized by taxa, or natural history subject, ...

A few more things from Days 1-4
I left out a few things from days 1-4 that I wanted to share, and then I'll get to Sanibel, which was like a different world, simply because it wasn't cloudy or raining. Here's one I missed posting yesterday taken at Lovers Key State Park- a Wilson's Plover...
Here's one I missed posting yesterday taken at Lovers Key State Park- a Wilson's Plover, which was a first sighting for me. There intermediate in size between the much smaller piping and snowy plovers (they're coming) and the Black-bellied Plover, which is giant. I observed three of these birds ...

I spent five days last week exploring southwest Florida. Unlike most Florida January weeks, I experienced quite the deluge, with over four inches of rain in a 48 a period. I managed to make most of my time that it wasn't raining, photographing many species of birds.
