I work as a Technical Writer for Gulfstream Aerospace in Georgia. I write and publish aircraft technical manuals for use in operating and maintaining business aircraft.
My true love is nature. I prefer to be out in the woods with a camera, or sitting by a warm fire on a cool night with a cup of coffee listening to the sounds of the forest !
I've been shooting 35mm cameras for years and with the advances in digital photograhy, it's obviously much easier to share and compare photos. With the addition of a fair camera with macro capibilities, I've just reciently begun insect/bug photography.
I'm educated enough to understand the diversity and basic identification of bugs . . . but still have much to learn.
