I am a 20 year old nature nerd specialising in Australian huntsmans but have recently become fascinated in birds, butterflies and moths. I am mostly self taught but have also learnt a lot from many smart people and scientific papers.

I am always putting myself out there to learn about all kinds of Australian organisms other than spiders, so I am open to critique in any field I step forth in.

Am currently working on a huntsman field guide so if you have any macro shots of them, feel free to email them to me, made this email when I was little because I was obsessed with the java computer program :D
