Probably not what some of you might have been expecting. If you were counting on some species of insect, sorry. Pray Websters II defines the word emergance as: 1. The act or process of emerging. 2. Bot. A superficial outgrowth of plant tissue. Very Happy


My Forsythia is in bloom... Very Happy


...as is my Red Maple tree Very Happy Temperatures are supposed to hit close to 80 by the end of next week. Dancing But of course we all know that the weather, like most all things in nature, is dynamic and that we are in a transitional period. Sad

Ah yes bugs, insects... Think I am hoping that I will be able to give them a wide berth this year, though that is not to say that I will not photograph some but I am hoping for some things a bit out of the norm, hopefully some things seldom considered but what could those things be? These mountains hold many mysteries Joan, so I will just have to wait and to see. To my last recollection, less than 50% of the biomass of the mountain range, the Appalachians, has been cataloged, that leaves a lot of possiblities, including insects, though I doubt that I will make any significant contribution. Think However it is the journey and not the destination that is important. Wink

Thanks Joan Very Happy

I wish you good luck in your hunting Ken. I have always tried to diversify myself as it makes is much more interesting. But let's face it, the world of bugs is fascinating and the diversity there alone can keep one busy for years. Smile

Very interesting M8t. The top one looks like the flower off a native tree here called a Kohai. Both nice shots there Ken. Keep the sun shining as long as possible. Very Happy

Looked it up Danny, though I could not find much on Kohai, it does look somewhat similar to our Forsythia. Wonder if there is any relationship between the two? Think

Indeed it could but "diversity" is the key word here I think, at least for me it is. Very Happy

Thanks Danny & Joan Very Happy

Ah I see and I found some very intersting information on New Zealands history as well. Think So the Kowhai is a tree and its flowers appear much fuller than those of our Forsythia, which is a shrub and the Kowhai is your national flower. I have no idea what the US has but what ever it maybe, they have more than likely built a Wal Mart over the top of it. Laughing
