Dr. Richard Neves, the father of malacology, freshwater mussel collection spans 40 years and includes 1000s of extinct and extant species. After sitting in filling cabinets for the past decade it's heading to the North Carolina Natural History museum. #freshwatermussels#northcarolinanaturalhistorymuseum
Working at a cubicle isn't so bad when you're being paid to draw. These sketches will each become 2' x 3' posters to be displayed at the art and natural history museums in Davenport!
The reservoir at Killdeer Plains is practically nonexistent these days. This was a sad sight that gave way to a little adventure. I managed to climb down to the bottom where this old boat had been resting for years. The ground was absolutely covered in shells from freshwater mussels. This was the first time out of the house in a week due to terrible migraines and I like to think that it was well spent. Of course, as I type this, the warning signs of another migraine is presenting itself.
Yay. 🤕 #killdeerplains#ohio#freshwatermussels#boat
