The Olentangy Teems with Life

The Olentangy is teeming with life right now. The images are from my photo outing last Friday.

  1. Ok, Tom.
    Your wonderful water posts got us out (finally) in the canoe. And we saw a damsel fly orgy, too--though didn't get a good shot.
    Yours is wonderful.

  5. Nina-
    Thanks very much for the comment, always nice to know that I have inspired others to check out new habitats or look at new creatures.

    Mary- Thanks a bunch. This was the first time I had seen a juvenile map turtle, and it was really thrilling. Who doesn't love baby turtles?

    Sap- Thank you very much!

    Tom
