I am a biologist with an academic position at a university who enjoys wildlife photography, especially moths. I have been actively photographing moths on my property and in the Bahamas for the past few years. Since my location is South Florida, I have been fortunate to observe a variety of tropical moths, not found in most parts of the U.S. My goal as a contributor is to post only photos that I feel will be useful additions to the Guide, and that add identification quality, geographic data or seasonality data. I hope that my photos will be useful to others working to identify moths, and that my contributions to the Guide will help make it more complete.
