I have a deep Passion for Pollinators as well as other insects. I am a avid gardener that starts my own plants from seeds in my greenhouse to attract some of the most heart warming visitors you can attract.
I love photographing these visitors to share with others. The Monarch photo above is a example of the magic I am able to capture. She was laying a egg on the milkweed in the photo. I was able to capture the full metamorphosis through photographs. This allowed me to share with school children the magic. The school children voted and named the new Monarch "Beautiful" before being tagged and released for it's journey to Mexico.
I love what I do, I hope my photographs will bring heart warming feelings like I experienced capturing them.
