I'm interested in all things natural, and have been an amateur naturalist for most of my life. I really enjoy taking macro photos, the result being that my hard drive is packed full of images it's unlikely anyone (even myself) will see. But when I have time and inclination, I try to get some over here.

I've compiled and sorted many of my submissions here on these pages:

My BugGuide Submissions

This is mostly for me, for ease of searching my submissions - I got tired of "Have I already posted this beetle? Gee, let me flip through 100 pages to check..." But if it helps anyone else, I'm glad!

It is my wish that all of the content I have contributed to (photos, comments, etc.) remain on the site in the event of my death.
(thanks Ken Wolgemuth for this wording!)
