Wildlife at Horicon

Geese, ducks, cranes, egrets, and seagulls are some of the waterfowl and other birds we encountered on our October 10th visit to Horicon Marsh. Taking pictures of moving creatures is not my forte, but even with my limited skills I was able to get some shots I was happy with. The highlight was the swan we spotted from afar! Closer to land we saw quite a few turtles, and Mr. Grasshopper stood quite still  while I took his portrait.

Horicon Marsh

I visited Horicon Marsh recently on a bright, sunny, breezy, gorgeous autumn day. I took several hundred photos, which I am still in the process of sorting through and editing. I expect this post to be the first of many. The beauty of Horicon is spectacular. Please enjoy!

Color in My Backyard

When I look out of my kitchen window, I see two trees that turn the most gorgeous colors in the fall! I went out to take some photos during a work break yesterday. (I am working mostly from home due to the pandemic.) I find the leaves to be so beautiful, whether still on the branch or already on the ground. In a few more weeks the trees will be bare, so I treasure these days of glorious, leafy color.

My Charts in "Horary Examples" - A Sneak Preview!

"Horary Examples" is a collection of detailed, step-by-step explanations of horary judgments on a wide range of subjects.  Editor Dave Menconi came up with the idea and brought the project to fruition in the fall of 2016. I am one of the contributing authors, along with my teacher, John Frawley, and four of my colleagues. I was honored to write the Introduction and the Glossary, as well.
