Amateur spider enthusiast / macro photographer in Austin Texas. I mostly post my images to iNaturalist (link) but I post things here when they are interesting/unusual/under-represented or to document data points in my area.

I very much appreciate all the information and help that BugGuide has provided me over the years as I've gone from "vaguely curious about spiders" to "mildly obsessed with spiders" :-)
