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.

Day 93- Creepy Crawly

Out on a walk yesterday, I spotted this iridescent brown beetle walking along the snow in our driveway. It was about 2-1/2" (6 cm.) long. I've never seen one of these before, but I'm thinking it's a wood borer of some type. It was trudging quite slowly in the snow. Perhaps last week's warmer temperatures had faked it out before the snow on Friday? I searched online for quite a while, but can't figure out what he is. (I'm HOPING not invasive!) Any ideas?


  1. I have no idea what kind of beetle it is...but these are great photos of it. So weird to see a bug walking on snow!

  2. No idea but he looks cool (pardon the pun lol) on the snow :-)

  3. Sorry, I don't know either. Great photos though.
