While living and working outside my home country of the U.S.A.--years spent mainly in Tanzania, Papua New Guinea, and the Philippines (Mindanao)-- I've encountered many beautiful and marvelous creatures, of which I have particularly fallen in love with moths, butterflies, reef fish, and birds. I am now finding great pleasure in documenting those I photographed on iNat, as well as what I'm finding at my current abode, California. Figuring out an organism's species is half the fun of having seen it, and sharing that data with fellow enthusiasts and the scientific community makes the experience even more satisfying!

Thanks to all who have helped identify my observations. I welcome corrections to any mistaken IDs.

Feel free to tag me on any taxa I seem qualified to identify. My current iNat specialty is moths of New Guinea, plus some moth taxa from throughout Oceania and Asia (e.g. Asian crambids), and a few from the U.S. If you're interested in what species I frequently identify, you can find that at https://www.inaturalist.org/observations?ident_user_id=shelley_b&place_id=any&subview=grid&view=species
