I'm an occasional nature photographer interested in all animal subjects, especially birds, insects and spiders. Please visit Swanson Media Photography to view my photographs and request image licenses. I'm also the creator of the Web site The Antlion Pit: A Doodlebug Anthology and its companion DVD Antlion Safari. I have a master's degree in film/video production.
