Follow me on my adventures exploring & photographing the natural world.

My blog posts will generally fall into one of four categories:
- Curious Questing – Follows an adventure in the pursuit of wildlife, often a “Rare” or “Life” bird chase.
- Environmental Advocates – Highlights people or groups that have championed the cause of conservation.
- Nature’s Sanctuaries – Focus on a specific location’s habitat and the species that thrive there.
- Species Spotlight – Natural history of a specific species which may include local anecdotes and observations.
