Seasonal photographic bonanza

After a lapse of many months, I have made a major photographic update, highlighted on the Spring 2012 photo gallery. It features the nature photos I took on a recent impromptu field trip to Reddish Knob by members of the Augusta Bird Club, this past Saturday. (See separate Wild birds blog post, later today.) Reddish Knob is the second-highest peak in this region (Elliott Knob being the highest), but is easily accessible by car. The weather was almost perfect, and we had spectacular views. Some of the individual photos shown in the following montage from that day have already been posted separately on various Nature photo gallery pages, and others will be posted, once I determine what their names are.

Nature montage, June 2012

Nature montage: Clockwise from top left: Red-spotted Purple butterfly, Chestnut-sided Warbler, Periodical Cicada, unknown wildflower, Mountain Laurels in bloom, unknown spiny caterpillar, unknown butterfly, and in the middle, a Black-throated Blue Warbler and and unknown bracket mushroom, similar in size and shape to the "Chicken Mushroom," but bright red.

Also on that page: photos from my brief visit to Washington D.C. on Feb. 10 (when I stopped to see the "Occupy D.C." protesters at McPherson Square, and my U.S. Government class field trip to Richmond on February 23. Plus a few interesting shots from in and around Staunton.

blog highlights

Blog highlights have been compiled for the years 2010-2012 thus far, and eventually will be compiled for earlier years, back to 2002.


The "home made" blog organization system that I created was instituted on November 1, 2004, followed by several functional enhancements in subsequent years. I make no more than one blog post per day on any one category, so some posts may cover multiple news items or issues. Blog posts appear in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made:

  1. Wild birds (LAST)
  2. War
  3. Science & Technology
  4. Politics
  5. Latin America
  6. Culture & Travel
  7. Canaries ("Home birds")
  8. Baseball (FIRST)
