I am a coastal Alabama native. I enjoy bird watching, mothing, and nature photography. Since childhood I've always loved the diversity of animals, especially in birds and insects. I joined iNaturalist in July to catalogue my moth findings. I joined Bug Guide as well for the rarer species, or ones I cannot figure out. I'm out at least once a week at my sheet with a mercury vapor lamp and my Canon t6i with macro lens and LED mount.
