A note from the NYFalls.com founder:
Due to a company restructuring, I will be losing my full time job soon. Although it saddens me to leave the company that I have helped build up for the last 14 years to the success it is today, I am looking forward to new opportunities. I am known for my technical, managerial, and creative abilities, and I hope to utilize all of those talents in my next career. I put together a résumé outlining my skills and projects. Please have a look. Although I am open to any management position, I would like to leverage my experience and success with NYFalls.com and NYHistoric.com into a career in the WNY travel/tourism industry. If you know of a company that would benefit from someone with talents and experience, please spread the word. Thank you for your help and support.
Here is my Resume | Discussion topic

Just a plain ol' honeybee. There were many dozen bees of all sorts enjoying this very fragrant plant outside at the Highland Park Conservatory. I wasn't familiar with the plant, but I think the worker told me it's called Snakeroot.

I looked this worm up again. I believe its a Tomato Horned Worm. It turns into the Five Spotted Moth. The white parasites are Wasp eggs.
