Muskingum County

Today, the Ohio Heritage Naturalists trekked to Muskingum County. While there, we saw many things, but the find of the day was a just "hatched" ( I don't know dragonfly lingo, but I'm willing to learn) tiger spiketail. Here our photos from the day. My goal was to get pictures of woodland sedges. I've labeled them and hopefully spelled them correctly. Click on the slideshow and it will take you to a nice webpage where you can see the labels and view larger versions of each shot. I was using the division's Nikon D70 with a 60mm macro lens, and I must say, there was a bit of a learning curve, but after cropping and sharpening, I am happy with the results. Thanks again to our volunteers who helped us inventory today.



  1. I like hte pictures of the old stone walls...I think that would be a cool project- to tour around and take pics of old and new stone walls... sort of like people take pictures of outhouses old and new... :-)

  2. That wall was actually the foundation from an old spring house. All that was left was the foundation, a few slate tiles, and some hunks of old rusted metal.
