Biography:

Docent, 15 years Big Basin Redwoods State Park. I do public walks the third Saturday and following Sunday of each month at Big Basin, and the Second Sunday of each month at the Rancho del Oso section, which I've recently added insect surveys to my flower/Banana Slug, Herp photographic survey collections.

Photography addict, flowers and macro mainly.

Presently Olympus E-620 and 14-54, 50-500 w-EX 25 tube, 70-300 w EC 14 tele, 50 mm f 2 macro with and without EX 25 extension tube, Sigma 105mm macro with and without EX 25 extension tube and 1.4 tele.
Olympus 35 mm era T-28 Macro Flash unit when not using built in flash. Old flash bracket on tripod screw, as lower handle with small white light LED flashlight attached to give enough light for focus.

Some older photos used the Olympus E-330.

Note: Scott passed away late in 2016.
