Thursday, May 19, 2016

Sometimes when you observe nature in action, you are not sure what is going on.

Oak Titmouse, A Placerita Native
Thursday, Oct 29, 2015

To Bee or Not to Bee
Thursday, May 7, 2015

My day was like every other day – that is, until I arrived home from work. To escape the heat of my house and enjoy what little of the day I could, I went out to my backyard.

Thursday, Mar 20, 2014

What do Ventura and Baja, California, have in common during the last two weeks of March and the first week of April? They are on the migration path of the gray whale, going north to Alaska.
