About I am a consultant working with homeowners and small property owners and also work in higher education, teaching in the natural sciences. Plants are my lifelong passion, but I am also fascinated by birds, insects, mammals and fungi. For each organism I photograph, I am fascinated to know its life history, the niche in the ecosystem it occupies, and the biotic interactions that are part of its existence. We can learn a lot from observing plants, plant communities and the organisms that they support. I reside in the beautiful Southern Adirondack region of New York State.
