Photographer (including wildlife and nature), citizen naturalist, amateur entomologist.

Although my primary goal is to capture images of nature (my main focus is images of insects), I sometimes enjoy shedding the camera gear and going “on safari” in my backyard and the surrounding woods with just my eyes, ears, and a pair of close-focusing binoculars in search of something new just outside the back door.

My Observations of My Favorite Taxa
Cuckoo Wasps (Family Chrysididae)
Chalcidoid Wasps (Superfamily Chalcidoidea)
Ants (Family Formicidae)
Metallic Wood-boring Beetles (Family Buprestidae)
Tiger Beetles (Subfamily Cicindelinae)
Jumping Spiders (Subtribe Synagelina) - Genus Synageles & Genus Peckhamia
Dragonflies and Damselflies (Order Odonata)
Slime Molds (Phylum Mycetozoa)

My iNaturalist Year in Review
2021, 2020, 2019, 2018

In 2020, I was honored to have one of my observations of a Long-tailed Giant Ichneumonid Wasp (Megarhyssa macrurus) selected as observation of the day for June 11, 2020, and again as observation of the week (week of June 21, 2020), which is covered in this blog post: A Trip to Texas Provides a Long Sought Photographic Opportunity - Observation of the Week, 6/21/20.

Other iNaturalist Data
My Maverick IDs - Hopefully just a few or none!
