It's Time to Say Goodbye to the Backyard Bur Oak
When we moved to Worthington in June of 2008, we chose a house with a massive bur oak tree in the backyard.  If you've followed this blog for a while, you will surely remember many great stories and photos about this tree.  The tree is truly massive, weighi...

Bean Leaf Beetle: Backyard Biodiversity Project Species #7
While it may seem hard to believe, each one of these beetles is a member of the species Ceretoma trifurcata . While highly variable in color and pattern, the characteristic to look for in this species is the triangular shaped patch on the abdomen just behin...

Nature Photographers to Explore
A quick note: I'm working on repainting our stairs in preparation for the new baby- our old runner was failing, and it was time to rip it up, repaint the stairs, and install a new one.

I'm updating my "Nature Photographers to Explore" section in the right ...

An Agalliopsis Species: Backyard Biodiversity Project Species #6
What I'm finding out about the world of insects is how relatively common species that I encounter in my backyard are poorly unknown.  This leafhopper is tiny, and supposedly there are 15 species in the genus Agalliposis, but only two are listed on bugguide ...

Evening Ride Along the Olentangy
Olentangy River at I-270 Antrim Park Alloway St. E. We're back from Munroe Falls; we had a great time at the Hill family reunion on Saturday, and this morning we visiting my grandmother.  After the two-hour drive back to Columbus, I decided to take the bike...

Are you on Instagram?
I've used Instagram for quite some time, but I've only recently found my voice there, at least photographically.  If you are a photographer, it's an amazing platform to share your work, and to find other inspiring nature photographers.  I've been using Adob...

Backyard Insects to be Identified
I've been busy photographing all types of insects for the backyard biodiversity project I've began.  Here are a few things from a weekend afternoon of exploring the insects of our yard.  I will be doing my best to identify each one to species, but here's ju...

Gone Fishin'
Well, not really.  This weekend my mom is organizing a big reunion of my maternal grandmother's family.  We haven't gotten together in 11 years, and I've been spending the last two nights preparing a slideshow of old family photos.  Here's a gem that I thou...
