My Profile photo is my Yorkie Poo, after a long nature hike. He loves to go and is always by my side walking or riding in his dog stroller. In 2017 almost everything I came across was fairly new for me. I am an AMATEUR! I love nature, always have. I live for the outdoors. I travel, hike, bike, camp, walk and clean a huge park. I own and operate a business with my husband of 29 years. He will also be retiring in 2019, from a full time job of 34 years. We are so looking forward to being together more and enjoying nature together. I dabble in many things, as we are a do-it-yourself as much as possible team. I do not get much time to learn all the different things there is to know to differentiate the insects I come across but I do not let that stop me from posting what I have found. I love being part of citizen science. I am more citizen than the science.(lol) I am thankful to everyone who have been kind enough to ID what I post or tell me I have it wrong and some tell me why it may be wrong. When people ask me, what are you photographing? I love telling them about iNaturalsit. I tell them about all the cool and weird and wonderful things people upload every second, minute and hour of the day and night. Some are amazed! Each day I am opening a gift with my eyes and camera. The biodiversity of plants and animals and insects is truly amazing.

I also have read many articles on-line about what's going on in Nature and shared some of the Articles in my journal.
My biggest pet peeve is plastic in nature. I despise what it does to the scenery. I clean so much of it from our area. Also, how it effects creeks, rivers, lakes and oceans and how it hurts those living organisms within these places, as well as on land.
