Here, Mike gets a first look at the internal anatomy of a yellow perch (Perca flavescens). This opportunity was provided at the Stone Laboratory on Lake Erie for a class in Aquatic Ecology. There will be more perch pictures, but not quite as gruesome.
This is one of the first shots I took with my Canon PowerShot. It was exciting to see the vividness of the colors in this unedited photography when I first viewed it. The picture was taken of my house and grandfather’s barn across an alfalfa field in November. The flat terrain reminds me of Ohio, but I assure you, there’s a hill behind me.
