Here's more than you want to know about me: Jo McGavin aka (Full Name)Jo Ann Poe-McGavin

I'm a life long resident of Pennsylvania. Married, have one daughter (who will be off to college in October--already!).

I graduated college (Yay...), if it weren't for Algebra, I'd have done better! I hate Math!

My hobbies include Herpetology, Herpetoculture, Music, Art, Science, Photography, Reading, Hiking and collecting silly things like Anime Figures, RUSH (yes,the band) stuff, etc.

Although Reptiles and Amphibians are still my main interest, I've gotten back into insects.

I've always liked photography (you can't believe how much I've wasted over the years-Thank God for digital cameras!)

Anyway-my older photos HERE were taken with a Sony DSC-P30 (1.3mp) and my newer ones are taken with a Sony DSC-H5.

Is that enough? My typing is awful! Oh yeah-and if you go to my PA Wild website-please excuse the OLD "ratty" (Panasonic-ack!)digital photos-I still need then but I'm working on replacing them.
