I use this blog primarily to share nature photographs. I’m also on Flickr, Instagram, and Twitter.

I’m a graduate of Reed College (BA) and Brown University (PhD) and did post-doctoral research at Washington University and the University of Chicago. I taught evolutionary biology at Swarthmore College from 1997 to 2011.

If for some reason you’d like to support my futile projects, you can buy me a virtual coffee via my ko-fi page. Or surprise me with a book from my Amazon wishlist.

If you’d like to purchase a license or print of any of the images on my Flickr account, please contact me. Teachers may use my photographs in educational lectures without asking me.
