I'm a nature nerd and grad school dropout (with a B.S. in Biology). These days, I spend as much time as I can observing, hiking, photographing, and cataloguing my findings. I have a strong interest in fungi, plants, and insects, but I love learning about anything and everything! I cannot say that I am a specialist as I have a tendency to jump from one hyperfocus to the next. I drew a lot of inspiration from my professors in my college years, particularly from James K. Adams (who ignited my passion for insects and ecology)! In 2017, my partner and I chose to buy several acres of old growth forest in the Appalachian foothills to place under conservation (with money that would have gone to grad school) and go off the grid. At that point, I pretty much became a full time "nature biographer".

    9. It was a perfect specimen. These Catocala are a bit temperamental, but they will often eventually settle down and let you hold them. I was excited to see these colors. They blend in well with the red/yellow soil we have nearby.
    10. So very cute! I love this, Ferdy!
