 That is interesting.  I did not know that either.  About 5 years I planted some Oak saplings in the yard and every year they grow.  But I believe I will be long gone before they reach maturity.

Until I met these, I didn't know there are columnar oaks. These are Ware's Oak, a mix of Columnar English Oak and Swamp White Oak.

I had to make a quick trip to Taipei, Taiwan last week. Something interesting caught my eye. Outside of many office buildings, there were tables set up. When lunchtime came, Uber Eats delivery person came by motorcycle or scooter (don't have to worry about parking). They dropped off the food on the table and left. There was no receptionist or security. I was told that since the beginning of the pandemic, they refused delivery persons to enter the buildings. It worked so well, the practice continued.

That is great Shujen! I don't think that would work here, I'm sure it would atract the pilferers.

Yesterday, I attended a Moth Night event at Morton Arboretum. Moth Night is an annual event performing census data for research. We hung a piece of white cloth with two lamps of different wavelengths on each side and waited for the moths to land on it. I used a macro lens I bought at the hotel during a 24-hour layover in Tokyo in 1979. The lens is sharp but has no auto-focus. The flutter of the cloth in the wind made it very difficult to take close-up pictures.

Nice photos, Schen.  You hooked up your old lens to a digital camera.  They seem to be in good focus.  I'll bet you moved with the moving cloth.
