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.
Spotting this adult Oak Treehopper on a California Black Oak the other day, a month earlier than expected, sent my bug-loving mind a whirl. I'm sitting at my favorite coffee shop where the Internet speed is great and I can upload these photos quickly. Now, I'm going to walk home, treating the oppressive heat and haze as my free weight-loss program, then add add text to this post in he comfort of my home office. Please stay tuned. Meanwhile, click on amy photo for a closer view, and possibly some surprises.
