Tammy and I had a great meeting. We hammered out the main contents of the magazine, added and scratched some ideas. The layout flows and there is going to be a lot of information, photography and we are excited to get this going.
Tammy’s role is a huge part and an important part of the magazine. She will be overseeing content, articles, and advising what works and what doesn’t, kind of like having a second pair of eyes!
I have an appointment with a business lawyer in October to ensure the success of this magazine. Things are beginning to look good!
I am so grateful for all those that have replied to be a contributor to the magazine. Thank you!
Tammy Walters Fox has agreed to be my co-editor. We will be meeting on Monday to go over some details of the magazine from layout to monthly content as well as review those that submitted as a contributor.
I will post updates periodically before the first meeting on October 27.
There may be the opportunity to take more contributors for smaller content.

No matter what flower you are looking at you can guarantee there will be a Green Lynx Spider patiently waiting.
What caught my eye was how big the Green Lynx spider (photo below) was, it had to be able to hold on to that bumble bee.
It takes a lot of patience to stay still for so long and wait for hours until a butterfly, bee or even a grasshopper is within its reach. Sometimes they succeed while in the video I believe most often they don’t.
I believe those are leafcutter bees that are mating, at least it was “are” instead of “were”!
