Tallahassee, Florida, USA
As a teenager in what was then East-Germany I raised and collected butterflies and moths and now have returned to this hobby with a digital camera. I am a retired professor of plant physiology and in my spare time have been active as an amateur ornithologist (bird bander). As undesirable reminders of age began to limit the pursuit of my birding hobby, learning more about the moths and butterflies at the suburban location of our home in the Florida Panhandle was a welcome new challenge. Indeed, almost all my photos posted in BugGuide were taken at our home and in our yard (≈1/2 acre) the vegetation of which consists of lawn grass, various shrubs and weeds, pine trees, Live Oak, Southern Magnolia and some deciduous trees. Occasionally I explore the patch of mixed woods to the south and the weedy clearings around (regrettably) communication towers.
