Biography:

I'm an ecologist (Ph.D.), and I know a lot more about the plants than I do about the bugs that are on the plants. Most of my photos are taken near my house because it is embarrassing to know less about my backyard than about my research sites. My backyard is ~3 acres of historically overgrazed pinyon-juniper woodland with a mix of naturally-occurring wildflowers/forbs/shrubs/grasses and natives that I've planted.
