Things what is and Things to come
If you haven't visited for a while, you can see that I have made some changes. The 'Home' page is now a good place to start to find anything I have on the web. My welcome box will remain mostly static but the photo box below it will change from time to time. This box and the ones below it will have information about changes I make or intend to make.
I am at work on a couple of 'places', but will probably not have much ready until after summer passes. It's just too good to miss.
I have taken a number of trips to a variety of places in my photographic endeavours. Some of those places and photos have given me fond memories. I have added a section with photos and summary of these Memorable Places. This will be an ongoing project so I will post a brief intro to the latest one here. Hopefully, many will be checking often and this will help make their visits worthwhile.
The first one is on now and is about a place with Great Gray Owls. I visited there in 2005 which was a good year. Some years have been sparse but I understand the area still has the owls. They were pretty tolerant when I was there but being respectful and giving them space is always the thing to do.
The second place, a desert oasis kinda, is now up and running.
My third offering is a work in progress and will take some time to bring up to date and forever to complete. It is my yard.
Welcome to my Home page.
This is the home page of Joseph V Higbee, aka jvhigbee. From here you can view anything I have on the web. In the menu above are links to my extensive photo galleries on pbase.com and a photostream of current photos on Flickr.com. The other links in the menu are to pages on this site containing various photos and writing. More information about me and the site can be found in the link above.
I'm Going Buggy!
There are a lot more bugs than birds! Not all of them are as easy to find, see and photograph, however. I am finding it quite challenging to get photos and even more of a challenge to identify what I get. This spider is some kind of Orb Weaver. Which one of the over 3500 kinds, I'll probably never know. But I got the photo, boy!
The flower is Queen Anne's Lace. Plants are a little easier than bugs but still much harder to identify than birds.
