Previously @mbwildlife! But I might change back! I'm indecisive...

A teenage naturalist and amateur wildlife photographer. I'm still learning a lot of the taxa around me, and trying to expand to places outside of my comfort zone (unless I travel, I'm primarily around Pennsylvania, US). My very current interests are salamanders and colubrids. I'm versed in many North American birds and mammals. You might find me noodling around with article-writing and identification when I'm not turning a stream upside down — or playing acoustic guitar, or writing poetry by fountain pen. I am very vocal about conservation efforts and do what I can with my limited wallet and experience at the moment. See my lovely girlfriend's profile (whom I roped into iNaturalist...).

Keep in mind: I could be wrong with IDs. I've been wrong a lot of times.

Tambien hablo Español; soy media Ecuatoriana y espero volver algun dia.
(I also speak Spanish; I'm half Ecuadorian and hope to visit again someday.)

Please do check out my wildlife photography and films! If you would like to use one of my photos for any sort of publication, please message me! I am happy to work with you.

My icon is an Eastern copperhead that I had the chance to photograph in the mountains of Pennsylvania.
