2016-07-08: New toy day. I came across a super on sale set of "smart phone clip-on lenses" and made the impulse purchase. I immediately put on the macro lens and began to play.

2016-07-13: With the temperatures in the 90's, it has been much cooler inside than out, so #notmycat  (soon to rebranded Mr. Nero Pisello Dolce) has been chillin' on the couch.

He is a lucky kitty. But you might have to change your hashtag once things are official. ;)

Story
Tagline
scientist (ecologist), cyclist (commuter, racer), wannabe photographer (landscape, wildlife).
Introduction
I am an ecologist by trade, an avid cyclist, and a photographer in my spare time. My work and my cycling take  me outdoors on a daily basis, and I never leave the house without a camera in my pocket. My photography addiction started in 2006 when I got my digital SLR. Now 6 years later, I have taken over 80,000 photos, thrown most of them away, and used the remaining ones to make blank note-cards for personal use, to give as gifts, and sell to the public.

My photography tends to the wildlife and nature side of the spectrum, but I have been known to try my lens on landscapes, cityscapes, macros, and buildings.  The only subjects I tend to steer clear of when taking photos, are people.

My cycling has taken many forms from utility riding to run errands such as getting the weekly groceries, to year round commuting, to racing as a USAC category 2 rider on the road. The bike as a mode of transportation puts me closer to the world around me. That closer contact has, in turn, allowed me to capture scenes with the camera that I otherwise might not have noticed.

My work as an ecologist has involved the study of plant insect interactions and invasive species ecology in wetlands, rangelands, and now two deserts in the south western US.  The camera gear is the first piece of equipment packed when I prepare to head into the field for work.  Happily my supervisors have tolerated my photography habit - even when I've needed to get my fix in the middle of the work day.
