Biography:

I'm fascinated by a wide-range of arthropods, but especially fond of ants and beetles. Specifically I am interested in and study harvester ants (Pogonomyrmex spp.). Many of my photos are from research focused on arthropod community relationships with climate and vegetation.

Below are some of my favorites:

Ground beetles:


Weevils:



Darkling beetles:


Clown beetles:

"Why are there so many kinds of plants? As a zoologist I do not want to attack that question directly, I want to stick with animals, but also to get the answer."
-Hutchinson, 1959
