We are a mother-daughter biologist/blogger team, taking on a project to photograph, research, and write about the many different plant, animal, and insect species in our backyards — although sometimes the backyard has a global rather than local perspective. We live in Minnesota, one of us is a recently retired biology professor, and the other one is a former biology major, nurse, and now stay at home mom. Needless to say, we have plenty of time on our hands, and we want to share our love of our backyards with you!
Our influence on each other is one of the fun aspects of this partnership. Daughter excels in people photography (see Greater Good Photography), and has introduced mom to better cameras, better lenses, etc.
Mom keeps trying to get daughter to go bird watching, enticing her with telephoto shots of scarlet tanagers and colorful spring warblers.
Thanks for reading.
