Most of the photographs on my site are macros of insects, but I'm also fond of plants, spiders, and mushrooms. If you find anything misidentified or misspelled, I'd be grateful for a correction via comment or email.

In addition to nature photography, I also have an extensive collection of images from Swarthmore (where I live), nearby Longwood Gardens, and Mohonk Mountain House in New Paltz, NY. And, of course, miscellaneous.

For posts about natural history, please visit my blog, My blog also has tips on how to design scientific posters as well as other nerdy advice.

You can also find me on Instagram, Twitter, and iNaturalist.
