  1. Tom: Those are some brillant captures at the preserve, nicely done. Is that along Lake Erie?.

  2. Tom- You got it. Headlands is near the border of Mentor and Painesville in Lake County. Well worth the trip from Portage County. It is one of Ohio's best birding sites along the lake east of Cleveland.

  5. Neat series. The beachy duney was charming, the dead fish caught my eye, love the gentle deer. Love that red-roofed building in the distance in a field.

    My brother lives in Columbus, but when we visit, we mostly see suburbia. We do like the zoo.

  6. Great shots, even the dead fish. I was shocked to see that all those flies weren't on the fish. Were they near each other. Very lovely landscapes, the sand dunes along the Great Lakes never seem to disappoint. I'm hoping to get some images when I go over to Lake Michigan again in October.

  14. Well, that's a lot of terrific photos to comment on. I'll say that I REALLYlove the ones with the grasses and meadows. The skies are fantastic, but the grasses and meadows add so much. And some really good insect shots. That fly-covered (or whatever-covered) leafy plant looked like something I'd want to stay away from!

  15. Thanks Everyone-

    And to Leora-

    This nature preserve is about 3 hours northwest of Columbus, past Cleveland on the Lake Erie coast. The Columbus Zoo is a definitely a great stop here in C-bus, Megan and I are members and go frequently.

  20. T.R-

    I believe that this is a hairy-necked tiger beetle, a beach dwelling species that is state threatened here in Ohio.
