I observe and identify bees, wasps, and additional wildlife, and help compile and add global bee and wasp species checklists to help identification (to use, select the checklist filter in Compare or Suggestions). Along with photography I occasionally collect insect specimens, which is a sustainable practice in bee research and conservation. My current experience includes continuing entomology training following a related Biology M.S., contributing to New York State pollinator surveys and community science bioblitzes, and helping Bugguide.net as a Contributing Editor. Some of my photos also explore urban ecology and the natural rewildling of unmanaged or abandoned built environments. Feel free to message.
