Expertise: Generalist, terrestrial, especially South Australia. I know a few plants, many birds, a few reptiles, and am learning about various spider and insect groups, fungi etc. I also record (and remove) various weeds that I am familiar with in my local area.

Identification: As an observer, if I use an automated suggestion when posting a new observation I try to make a note of it if I am not confident with the taxa myself. As an identifier, I focus on moving Unknowns and other high-level identifications to the most appropriate classification I can be confident with. I am very cautious using the automated suggestions as an identifier.

Purpose: Engaging with nature is a fun, healthy and positive thing for me. I also believe that encouraging others to observe and learn about nature leads to better outcomes for our global environment.

Equipment: Lightweight - I take macro photos with a Panasonic LX-10 (large-sensor compact camera) and my Samsung phone. Other photos may be taken with a Sony DSC-WX350 compact camera.
