An amateur naturalist with an interest in a broad range of wildlife in Australia. Originally trained as a chemist at Manchester Uni, followed by business studies, and now studying entomology as a retirement project. I enjoy participating in iNaturalist as a way of learning this subject.

I also enjoy photography. Most of my photos are hand-held shots in the field. I also like to take microscope photos and high magnification macro studio shots using a motorised macro-rail set up.

I try to be careful in making IDs but I am still very much a learner and I do make mistakes, so please don’t hesitate to tell me if you think you have seen one of them! And thank all the knowledgeable people on iNaturalist who have been helping me on the learning journey.

I am happy for my photos to be used elsewhere. I will provide hi-res versions on request and just ask that you credit me as the photographer where appropriate. It is nice to know where they get used too.
