I'm probably most interested in insects. This started when I was four, after my mother showed me how to raise caterpillars, which she had done as a girl. Her jam jars were never safe after that!

I took insect taxonomy and morphology courses in university. That was decades ago, so sadly my taxonomy is rather rusty. I am just now really getting back into taxonomy as a contributor to iNaturalist.

I worked as a technician rearing bumblebees for four years after graduation, so bumblebees remain a favourite group. All arthropods and most invertebrates are of at least some interest, though my expertise is limited. Photographing plants and insects is one of my pastimes. I garden, so fortunately I have numerous opportunities.
