Biography:

I am a writer and illustrator of children's books and fascinated by nature's attention to detail.

With thanks to Troy Bartlett for sharing his macro-photography knowledge, my bug photos were shot using:
Canon EOS Digital Rebel (6.3 megapixel)
Canon EF 100mm Macro Lens
Canon MP-E 65mm Macro Lens
Canon MT-24EX Macro Twin Lite Ringlite flash
Canon 420EX flash (with a light diffuser)

My preference is to photograph insects in their natural habitat, doing their insecty-things. I also enjoy a close-up portrait of their alien noggins. Here are a handful of favorites:


My photographs have appeared in exhibits and in published field guides, including:
