On my way across the country in 2009, I stopped in Denver for the two day Colorado Drupal Camp. The Colorado Drupal Camp is probably one of the best events I’ve ever attended.

The Queen's Fly

Who knew that flies could be so colorful? This fly chose to sleep on a bed of Queen Anne’s lace.

Here’s another breed of spider just moseying along on her web. If you know what kind of spider this is, please let me know in the comments.

Spiders Series #4

Birds do it. Bees do it. Even skinny brown spiders do it. (Sorry, Cole!) Here’s a male and a female spider doing the dance of love. I hung around and watch these guys for a while, but I’m not sure you would like to see more.

Here’s the underside of a fat belly spider weaving her web. If you know what kind of spider this is, please let me know in the comments.

Spiders Series #1

Tags: 

Mom and Charlie had a bunch of shrubs in their backyard that were covered in spiderwebs. My children think I am a wuss. Actually, I am a wuss, but once in a while I do pretty brave things. I got up way before dawn to see who the heck was making all those webs.

What feels better on a hot summer day than dipping your feet in a fountain? Here’s a heavily manipulated photo of the feet of a little nature boy fountain at Wildwood Park in Toledo, Ohio. The next time you’re in Toledo, one of the many things you should do is visit Wildwood Park.
