Digging

September 19, 2017. Finished the Poland paper today. Yay! On the way home, took a detour to find a photo around the outskirts of the town. I've been agonizing over the colour of the sky in my photos. Of course we all love that bright blue. The problem is, the sky itself often isn't bright blue, especially near the ground. This blue is pretty true to the original colour. I will keep tending to it.

Monarch

September 17, 2017. I spent the day working on the Contact North paper. I really wanted to be out cycling, but work takes priority. On the other hand, had I been away, I would have missed this beautiful monarch butterfly in the back yard.

Parasites

September 15, 2017. Andrea found this. If you look closely, you'll see a caterpillar underneath the white figures of wasp larvae feeding on it. Just a few minutes earlier, it was quite plump (I saw photos). Circle of life.

Castor River

September 14, 2017. Had a couple of impromptu meetings today and otherwise worked on the Poland paper. On the way home went looking for herbicide for Andrea's buckthorn project. Ended up out in Russell, and I photographed the Castor River at the Limoges Road.
