I’m a bit of a maniac when it comes to having too many interests. Anyone that knows me can attest to my eagerness to try things and get involved with the things I really like. Two things I really like, like enough to make new blogs about: Adventure Touring and Photography. Adventuring.Bike is my cycling-centric […]
Save the beeeeeeez. Once you learn more about the difference between the types of bees, wasps, and other black-and-yellow buzz-floofs, you come to the realization that these little fellas are incredible.
I finally rode the Oregon Stampede route. It has been many months since I’ve pedaled any sort of distance above 30 miles in a day, on gravel, in 95+ blazing sunshine. It hurt like a mofo, but it was oh-so-satisfying.
Gravity can’t keep him down.
Gorgeous morning, nearly walked into this perfectly formed spider web at chest height. Happy hunting, little fella.
Wow, what luck! Not one…or two (seen here) but THREE juvenile Barred Owls in Forest Park. We were riding back for the night, nearly finished with our ride when we saw a large bird fly in front of us. Then a second. As we stopped to take photos, a third owl perched right above our […]
Ugh. This wasn’t a good day. Completely missed the bird by fidgeting with the camera too much and not being prepared.
This is a typical day of commuting on Williams in NE Portland. I saw a few cyclists ahead of me, but as I checked over my shoulder I was astounded at the number of cyclists still coming up the road. It’s difficult to capture the true number of cyclists that use this route. Probably in […]
This beetle, the size of a penny, was such a good model for me tonight. It sat on my deck and on this flower with the patience only an invertebrate could have.
That hair! I was never into spiders at all until I got some extension tubes for my camera. Now I can use the 16-50mm kit lens with a extension and focus really close on something so small. Who knew that jumping spiders could be so cute? It’s crazy to think this little fella is only […]
We spent the day working in the garden.
Lesson learned. Don’t forget to put the memory card back into the camera before leaving it at the office overnight. It was too dark to get the photos I wanted, but it still made for some interesting texture.
