A retiree from the petroleum industry, I have been interested in photography since 1972 when I got my first SLR camera to take pictures at the 1972 Olympics (tickets complements of the US Army). Other interests include exercise (biking, skiing, hiking), art, antiques and genealogy. A friend in town introduced me to bug photography, so add that to the list.

Cameras: Nikon D500 & D5300; Lenses: Nikon 500mm f/5.6 PF, Nikon 300mm f/4 PF ED VR, and 18-140mm AFS DX VR
