Welcome to my blog!

As my friends and family know, I have a passion for wildlife (and other animals). On my travels, I have always taken photos of animals and plants that I saw, but that activity became more focused when I joined Project Noah on 31 December 2011. Noah members introduced me to natural wonders that I never knew existed and induced me to look at animals in a new way. The Project requires that you find the scientific names for what you post and I ended up learning much more about the plants, mammals, reptiles, amphibians, birds — and most recently insects!  —  and appreciating their beauty and diversity even  more.

After being invited to join Project Noah as a volunteer Ranger (who helps welcome people to the Project and give them guidance on how to contribute), my interest in sharing knowledge about nature increased and I began writing blogs for Noah (often about endangered animals). Through this short weekly personal blog, I’d like to share with you some of my photos and observations about the environment that I see around me. Much of it will focus on wildlife, although I may include something about other nature-related topics from time to time.

I hope you enjoy it and will want to follow my musings. Thanks for visiting and have a nice day!

  1. Maria, I love the variety of your interests. You catch a remarkable variety of birds and insects with your camera. I had never seen either phoebes or chipping sparrows around here, but they are familiar birds in New England.

    • Thank you, Ruth Ann! Perhaps one day you will see a phoebe or chipping sparrow here; the sparrows like to come to feeders. I’m now preparing a couple blogs on hummingbirds, butterflies and feeding babies!

  2. I have yesterday photo of the I think Hummingbird Clearwing but want to be sure I have labeled it correctly. Can I send photos to your email for identification. Thanks…. I don’t have any way on this site. Lee/Stewartstown, PA
