Backyard Springtime Nature in New Jersey.

Doe (looks like she is expecting soon) inside the fenced in wildflower meadow. The fence needs to be repaired. I haven’t planted any wildflower seeds this year, so self-seeded from last year’s plants or local weeds. The tiny orange flowers are Siberian Wallflowers. I think the yellow ones are weeds. Daily birds include: Gray Catbird, pair of Brown-headed Cowbirds, Northern Cardinal, Chipping Sparrow, and Tufted Titmouse

I am a scientist by training (Eckerd College, BSc; Caltech, Ph.D.). I worked for 27 years as a Chemist in the Pharmaceutical Industry developing processes to manufacture medicines for human and animal health. I now spend my time as a photographer updating images in My Image of the Day Photoblog, and My eBird (with images of nearly 450 bird species). hope post COVID-19 to be a world traveler again. My interests include the natural world, wildlife, landscapes, sky, and seascapes, travel, and astrophotography. I look for unique ways of viewing the world and presenting my images. I have traveled to over 55 countries in six continents, often on Semester at Sea voyages. While at home in New Jersey, I spend time on home renovation and expansion of a wildflower garden/meadow.
