Knowing is Overrated

Thinking is more interesting than knowing, but less interesting than looking.
--Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832) German Author

Not knowing what kind of wasp this was, I thought, I'll look it up. Surely with its curved, U-shaped eyes, I'll be able to find it right away, I thought. Nope. And then I realized the above quote, which I had already selected, fit perfectly. There's no need to worry about identifying this thing. After all, looking is much more interesting than thinking and knowing. :)


  1. I was told about your site from my friend Kat. I am amazed by your photography and look forward to your blogs as well. I am from the East Coast originally so a lot of your photos hit home. Keep up the good work

  2. Thanks Suesan (and Kat!) -- Glad you stumbled upon my blog! I appreciate the note!
