As a lapsed horticulturist, I am well aware of the leaf miners and the damage they can do to trees. I see the symptoms of them often on my nature wanderings or when working in the garden: patches of leaf that are discoloured, sometimes with tunnels…

Paul Harcourt Davies and moth trapping--catch, photograph and release.
It took many years (and a not a small amount of pleasure) before I had to concede that I was not really a night person. Perhaps it is a consequence of the ageing process but I wake with the dawn and the riotous chorus the local avian fauna provides. There is some residual song from the ...

Story
Tagline
Appreciating the diversity of life.
Introduction
I'm a photographer based in Edmonton, Alberta. I photograph natural landscapes, rural/agricultural scenes and I specialize in close-up and macro photography. I teach photography workshops privately as well as through evening courses at MacEwan University.

Born in Canada, but of Dutch descent, my early life was influenced by travels with a constantly moving family. We moved through Canada and South Africa until I reached the age of 17, when we settled down in Edmonton, Alberta. During those years I developed a multitude of interests which I now share by means of photography and blogging

Interests: Photography; nature and biodiversity; entomology; history of science; evolution, Darwin and Co.; medieval history; Middle Earth; ales and brewing; medieval to classical period music, especially folk music; life...
