Observing nature in Ohio USA; other topics occasionally.
My name is Tracy, and I live in central Ohio. I now have the time to pay attention to the natural world, like I once did when I was young, growing up in small-town Ohio in a farming county. I hope you enjoy this site!
I’m an amateur (as in learning-as-I-go) when it comes to photography. When I’m not carrying a sizable camera, I usually have a little pocket-model point and shoot handy- and if I don’t, I often regret it. You can only take a picture if you have a camera on you, and if that means a pocket model sometimes, so be it. Apart from that little pocket camera, here’s my current gear:
Updated in 2016: Canon EOS Rebel T6 with a Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM Telephoto Zoom Lens (for when I’m in a serious photography mood)
Updated in 2017: Canon PowerShot SX60 HS (for when a lighter camera is desired, and for wide-angle lens shots)
Spring 2020: I’ve moved from Columbus Ohio out to the Springfield area of west-central Ohio. Getting to know the area better so that I can post about it!
Summer 2020: new posting schedule is every other month as follows-
