I am a life-long naturalist and biologist with a special interest in botany and birds. I am "best know" in the naturalist community as an specialist on the plant genus Castilleja (Indian Paintbrush), and I'm always happy to ID photos of paintbrushes, if I'm able. My primary photo collection is on Flickr, and I invite you to come visit my site. My Castillejas photos number in the tens of thousands and are arranged in 260 species sets. Every Castilleja species and variety in North America is presented, as well as many of the species from Mexico and Central and South America. I also have fairly large collections posted of other plant groups, especially the genera Cordylanthus, Orthocarpus, Penstemon, Pedicularis, Mimulus, Delphinium, Viola and others.
