My first time inside the gallery.
Even though my summer field season has finished, I still have three blog posts about Colorado in draft mode that I want to share. Here is one about most of the flowering plants that I photographed during the summer (and then I will post photos of insects and birds). I have arranged these images mostly by the time I saw the plants (i.e., phenology) and/or genus.
One of the earliest flowering plant that I saw. I couldn't identify it at the spot, but it is in the Parsley family (Apiaceae).
This past few days (Sept 10 - 14) I have been attending shows at the Ottawa Folk Festival - my first time attending this event and it is fantastic! Here are some photos I took from this event. Note: most of the shows were during night time and my camera is not good with high ISO, thus I turned most of these photos into black-and-white images.
There was a free event today at Canada Agriculture and Food Museum called "Bug Day", which consisted of various activities introducing insects to the public, e.g. insect zoo, cockroach races, insect collecting, etc. I went there mainly for the free admission into the museum, a place that I haven't visited yet here in Ottawa.

Given that school begins tomorrow and I now have a valid bus pass, I decided to go to Mud Lake today to do some wildlife-watching before the hectic school semester begins. The last time I was there was almost nine months ago, so everything are different now, especially temperature-wise. To read more about the different types of wildlife one can encounter at Mud Lake at different times of the year, read this post at the blog The Pathless Wood.
A true summer (sunny, hot, and humid) day today.
