I'm a habitat gardener who joined Audubon to learn to identify the birds in my yard and who is now also addicted to identifying butterflies and Odes. I spend as much free time as possible out and about.

I'm also a volunteer at the Phinizy Swamp Nature Park in Augusta, GA and am helping to develop the odonata and lepidoptera sections of the invertebrate list for the park as well as a butterfly and dragonfly list for Silver Bluff Audubon Sanctuary in Aiken, SC.
