I am a nature lover, and have interest in sciences in general, particularly in the natural sciences. I have background and have worked in Atmospheric Sciences and Computer Sciences. I was daily, always with camera in hand, taking pictures of things both interesting and not, somewhat documenting the day's walk. I don't consider myself a serious photographer, although I love pictures, have taken a lot of them, i often opt for quick pictures with little set-up so I can keep going, hoping to find more interesting things to photograph or observe. I've had a love of animals since before I could crawl, but my frustration in not being able to always see animals when I walk led me to begin identifying Flora as well as the Fauna. The last couple years I've tended to walk later in the day, which has lessened the number of insect/bug shots I get. Due to time of day, I've focused a bit more time on local deer and owls past year, but always looking at my porch spiders and moths for new visitors. (Was blessed to watch an American House Spider) for about 13 months, taking pictures of her and eggs acs (and spiderlings when present) for close to 12 months.
