Puzzler’s Profile

 
 

Awareness of and curiosity about nature must have been essential to our ancient ancestors’ survival.  They are essential for our survival too insofar as these attributes inform science and industry that sustain modern civilization.


Nevertheless, curiosity about the non-human world is scarcely universal.  People I know comprise three tribes:

Tribe A--Those who are students of nature from birth.

Tribe B--Those who develop an interest later in life.

Tribe C--Those who are terminally indifferent.


I am a member of Tribe A.  Why this is so is itself a nature puzzle and I accept no credit or blame for it.


Although I have lived in California, Indiana, Illinois and Michigan, East Central Minnesota is my place of birth and current residence.  Surroundings here, as anywhere, abound in nature puzzles.  Please join me in exploring them.
