Garden Warriors – Paper Wasp Squash Bug Terminators


This is the first year I’ve found squash bugs bugging me and my squash plants. It turns out though, that the paper wasps from a nearby nest love to eat baby squash bugs. So after rubbing the remaining eggs from under the leaves, not another squash bug was to be found the rest of the summer.

Many people are afraid of paper wasps and don’t like to have them around, but I’ve found that for the most part, if I just leave them be, they are too busy foraging and feeding their young to do me any harm. In addition to pest termination, wasps are also great pollinators in the garden.

Sweet Childish Days… Portraits of Children

Sweet childish days, that were as long
As twenty days are now.
~William Wordsworth

I’ve added a new gallery to my portfolio today. It features some of my past sessions featuring children and portraits of them in all their innocence and glory. They grow up too fast, which is why I love to capture as many of those shining moments as I can.

I’ve titled this image Shining Sea, but it is actually a river. More specifically, the Columbia River with the brilliant summer sun sinking slowly into it.
