About Project 365

Thanks for stopping by my blog! This is Year 2 of my Project365 blog. What is a Project 365? It's a photo challenge involving people from all over the world posting one photo per day throughout 2011. Some photographers choose themes, however for now my photos will be totally random. I will be shooting with my Canon EOS Digital Rebel XSi-18-55mm, 75-300mm zoom and 100mm 2.8 macro lenses. I edit in iPhoto and Photoshop Elements 9. Not all photos are "perfect"; the purpose is to make photography an everyday event.

I am not a professional. Photography has always been a diversion of mine. I am a primary grade teacher and passionate tech. enthusiast. I consider myself an experienced amateur with LOTS to learn!

You will find links to other photographers in the sidebar- do check them out! I have also joined the Flickr EdTech 365/2011 Group, and you can click this link to view the entire pool. I will be posting my photos to their group pool, as well as here on my photo blog. I welcome your constructive criticism!


1. Photos are to be taken in 2011.
2. Post your own work only.
3. Images may be edited or unedited- your choice.
4. Keep your images, text, and comments appropriate for all ages.

Japanese Beetle

The Japanese beetles have arrived. They've wreaked havoc on my poor blueberry bush here. Colorful little critters. But destructive.


  1. They are a colourful looking bug. Too bad they're so destructive. Do you have a way to protect your blueberry bush from them?

  2. There are traps you can hang in your yard to lure them away from your plants. Guess it's time to get one!

  3. I had no idea they were so shiny,I'm glad they haven't made it to the west.

  4. It is a terrific shot of the rotten little thing.

  5. Nice looking bug but must be a nuisance. I hope the traps will work!
