My name is David Hoffman. I teach English and journalism at Averett University, but I have two side interests - writing and photography. I also enjoy walking daily with my English setter, Sadie, and my wife, Elizabeth, on the Danville, Virginia, Riverwalk. As a novice to studying nature, I am fascinated by the slightest facets of the great outdoors, but most of my pictures are of birds - I don't know a lot about them, but I am learning more and enjoying taking pictures of them daily. I also take pictures of plants, other animals, and insects. All pictures posted for each day were taken on the day of my blog entry.

"What is this bug?" I asked. In mid-August I took a picture of this thinking it was a bee. However, when I got home and downloaded my photos, I looked closely and realized it didn't have a stinger, like most bees. I asked a colleague at Averett if she knew what it is. She said that that is a "bee moth" or a "humming-bird moth." Whatever it is, it is very pretty. Each day on the Riverwalk I see something I have never seen before. This is just on of those unique creatures I have seen while observing the beauty of nature.
