Welcome to the mon@rch nature blog and I hope you join us in some of our nature adventures through the Allegany State Park area!
I am a naturalist, field biologist and nature photographer from the Western New York area. I have started exploring nature writing through this blog and it truly has been fun sharing my numerous adventures with everyone. Thanks to the many other authors that help me with my post and they will be sharing some of their nature explorations.
I have always had a latent interest in birds and photography and have been lucky enough to find time to explore these interests over the last few years. I am very thankful to the Cattaraugus County Bird Club for getting me started, sharing their wealth of knowledge and for their wonderful programs. And many thanks to Tom for letting me share some of my adventures and photos on the Monarch Nature Blog.
Thank you for taking the time visiting and commenting on this blog.
Hi Tom! Fall is as beautiful in you area as it is here.

I would want to lie on the ground under that tree and look up through those leaves and watch them as they fell on me…

Great photo Mon@arch. The falling leaves frozen in time, I especially like the leaf falling in front to the trunk. Almost makes me wish we had trees here.

Wow…stunning! I so want to picnic at that table. Loved the shot of the owl in the other post, too. They’re so cute!

Did I look at this beautiful photo and not comment? I did. I must have been in a real hurry that day. The leaves are just gorgeous there. I think the leaf color at your park beats anywhere (I can’t believe I’m saying this but it even beats Oil Creek.)
