I have been taking insect photos for many years. I also enjoy photographing ducks and geese, herons and egrets, snakes and frogs, but I think my favorite subjects are beetles and leafhoppers.

I've contributed a number of firsts for BugGuide of many kinds, but I think my favorite was the first BugGuide posting for Northwest Territories, which was the last of our states-provinces-territories to be represented here.

When I am not working on photography I am a history professor.
