This has not been a busy year on my blog, having sometimes gone a month or more without posting anything new. Currently teaching three college classes online from home, and not finding much time to write and post images for the blog. One more week in the semester and Spring has sprung, so that should change. I have a backlog of several dozen photos taken in the last few weeks, so I will soon be posting them along with stories of the experiences I'm having along the way. My overall theme is generally concentrated on flowering plants and their symbiotic relationships with their pollinators. When the mood strikes, I insert philosophical and political comments. Please feel free to share your comments, but please be nice. I try to be.
I have been teaching since 1965 and have recently joined the English Department as an Associate Faculty member at Feather River College. Recently taught Nature Literature in America and am currently teaching Interpersonal Communication and Basic Reading and Writing.
Or is it molt? When I took this photo, I was conscious that it was framed by what I called "a new kind of adult," one on the far left and one on the right, with many juveniles in between. What I did not notice until I looked at it on my monitor was an emerging adult in the top center. Click on the photo for an enlargement and you'll see. If I only had a couple of days to spare, I could have stood there and watched it happen. I can't afford a time-lapse photography setup.
