Amateur photographer whose interests are primarily birds, butterflies, dragonflies, 'bugs' and anything wild and alive. Some of my pics can be seen at:
Note that not all of the pics are all that great but just the best that I have of that species - so far. It's an ongoing challenge to improve each species photograph.

Equipment used:
Nikon D7200
Sigma 150 2.8 macro, Nikon 85mm micro
Nikon R1 (some of the time)
