I have enjoyed the natural world for as long as I can remember. Photographing wildlife is just another excuse for me to get out as often as I can to see what Mother Nature has blessed us with. My favorite species wouldn't be a single one, but anything that lives on or in the oceans. I look forward to every trip out on the sea because you simply have no idea what will be there.

All of my observations include media. Initially I was only armed with a camera, but now I am submitting audio too. Short videos in .gif format are another method that I employ from time-to-time and I am looking forward to a time when iNat allows direct video.

I have a growing home library of field and research guides. Two libraries, one for owned and one for wanted. You can view it at the link below:
This is a great free site to track all of your books. If you start to use this service site please message me. I'm curious how others keep track of all their books.

Birds were my main target species for years but I always tried not to pass up an opportunity to photograph an insect, reptile or other animal and learn more about them. Thanks to iNaturalist my newest interests have come to be herps, mollusks, odes and beetles, plus I have a working knowledge of many southern California plants. I'm getting rusty on the more difficult bird IDs but my overall knowledge has grown vastly.
