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

Insects!

Talk about sightings and get help identifying Plants, Animals, Fish, and Fungi. Share pictures and video.

This is a Yellow Crab Spider that looks to have been eating very well with the amount of debris all over the flower. Spotted this spider while on one of our summer walks through Owl Woods.

This little guy flew in front of us while we were hiking out back with the dogs this afternoon. I never get tired of watching them.
