I am a wildlife biologist in Santa Barbara County, California. My interests are broad and include plants, terrestrial invertebrates, reptiles and amphibians, and birds. I do macro-photography as a hobby; my favorite subjects are the creepy crawly critters, especially California Orthoptera.

I try to respond to and review all posts I'm subscribed to that receive comments and all posts I'm tagged in. If I don't respond it probably slipped through the cracks: feel free to tag me again.

I routinely bait orthoperans and beetles by laying out oatmeal trails at night. Insects photographed with oatmeal are wild unless otherwise noted :-)
