Insectorama: Second Season

Falmouth Audubon: Google Earth photo

I went out to the Gilsland Farm (Falmouth Audubon), yesterday. It was a good bug photography day–overcast, light wind and about 75° F. As I walked along

many of the field and woods paths I wasn’t finding too much going on in the bug world. Perhaps that’s because we’re living during the insect apocalypse (see earlier posts).

Unexpectedly, I found more in the way of larger animals (and a former eagle’s nest). Unfortunately, these images aren’t super sharp as my camera was not set up for this type of

photography. However, given that I was rather close, you can see how these animals have come to see their environment as safe.

Oh, and one last thing for you peony lovers, the garden looks like it is about ten days away until full bloom.

Peonies not yet ready

I'm a retired medical sociologist from the University of Rochester. Climate change is one of the two great challenges facing humanity (the other is nuclear weapons). In writing about the impact of climate change I read reputable books and articles on the topic. So when I make statements about climate change you will see a link taking you to the scientific source(s) of the information I provide. As for my independently published photobooks, each has gone through several layers of editing and peer review for both readability and accuracy. This is not to say that everything I say is accurate. Even the New York Times makes mistakes. So, if you find something that is factually incorrect, let me know. I hope you find reading my blog a positive experience. If you do, please encourage your family and friends to have a look. You can find photos from my other photo work by clicking on the My SmugMug Gallery tab, above. Best wishes, -Steve
