While going through some old photo folders on my computer the other day, I came across this one I took of myself around this time 7-8 years ago. My family's farm in west central Ohio has a small woods with some of the largest bitternut hickory (Carya cordiformis) trees I've ever seen in it and this one made for a worthy subject to pose with. This was just as I was getting into botany and I was especially enamored with large, old trees at the start. The black and white treatment of the photo makes it look like it's over a century old and a distant ancestor of mine but that's just an emerging Buckeye botanist figuring out what he wants to do with himself and his life not all that long ago. A fun photo to reminisce on for me to be sure... #Nature #NatureGram #NatureLovers #NaturePhotography #IGNature #InstaNature #InstaLandcscape #InstaTree #Botany #Tree #Dendrology #BigTree #OldGrowth #AncientTree #Forest #Ecology #Hickory #Carya #Juglandaceae #Portrait #BlackAndWhite #Ohio #OhioTrees #OhioBotany #OhioNature #Winter #ALGibson #TheBuckeyeBotanist

    That's a big one for sure. Amazing what you can learn/become in 8 years, huh?

    The nascent botanist! I bet that hickory tells all its seedlings that it knew you back when.
