Interesting insects

A great afternoon workshop about insects and plants provided an insight in how entomologists view a garden, and was a delightful excursion.

Doug Tallamy, author of Bringing Nature Home, and Jim Costa, Director of the Highlands Biological Station, led our workshop (part of the annual Landscaping with Native Plants symposium).

Highlands, NC is just over an hour from where we live, so a relatively easy trip 'up' into the mountains.


  1. Insects are great fun to photograph in the garden.

  2. That would be a fascinating workshop. I'm hoping someday to leave my family for the day (or two, or more!) and attend some kind of gardening course. I had plans this year but they didn't work out...there's always next year :)


Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
