Greetings from the nature-friendly state of Ohio! This year started with tons of snow in winter followed by lots of rain in spring… It's now summer and here comes the sun!
My organic garden is thriving once again and the current harvest of cherries is better than ever! Also got many species of bees back with frequent visits from regional butterflies, damselflies and dragonflies during the day. At dusk, the lighting bugs take over and exhibit their usual light show. Occasionally, a fledgling may be spotted hopping around the herbs with their parents nearby.
Thanks for watching, expect lots of new photos to come!
The following are some of my recent faves:
I'm a painter/sketch artist, may I use your photo(s) as reference?

Can I use your images as stock or for photo-manipulation, web design, web blog, or other personal/school/work projects?
No, this gallery contains no stock images. All my photographs are copyrighted and may not be altered, printed or published in any media and/or format, and definitely not to be re-posted on other website, blog or social media page.
What do the four-digit numbers in your image titles mean?
