I started out as a birder, then gradually became interested in butterflies, dragonflies, mammals, herps, and other insects over time (beetles and syrphid flies - also known as flower flies or hover flies - seem to be the latest interest). However, anything colourful or unusual catches my attention while out hiking.

I have led both birding and dragonfly outings for the Ottawa Field-Naturalists' Club and am a contributor to the ROM Field Guide to the Butterflies of Ontario. I also enjoy writing about nature; when time permits, I write about my experiences on my blog, https://meadowhawk.wordpress.com/.
