365 Nature – Day 157

In 2016 I’m doing a 365 Nature project. Each day of the year I will post something here about nature. It may be any format, a photo, video, audio, sketch or entry from my nature journal. It could be a written piece. Each day I will connect to nature in some way and share it here by the end of that day. You can keep up-to-date by subscribing to the RSS feed or be notified by email. See all the 365 Nature posts.

June is also 30 Days Wild and I’m participating again this year.


Today I attended an urban pollinator class from the Xerces Society and just sitting in an air conditioned room made it well worth the trip on this absurdly hot day. The talk itself was excellent although it was fairly basic overall and I didn’t pick up anything new. The class was very well attended and I was glad to see so many people interested in learning about pollinators and how to help provide better habitat for them. I’m a proud Xerces Society member and I’m always happy to hear about the excellent work they’re doing.rt

Back home I spent a few minute in the front yard looking for some bees to photography. I didn’t last long, it’s already into the mid 80’s and the sidewalk was burning my feet. I’ll be glad to see the backside of this weather after tomorrow.
