I am a former feral child, trying to be a helpful older adult conservationist, using a camera, and now a blog.

I am in my 7th decade. I have witnessed a lot of changes in the natural world. Many not so good. So now I photograph and share what I’m seeing in nature. My goal is to attempt to raise awareness of nature’s vulnerabilities and the nature’s wonders that can yet be lost from our lives. Especially, our everyday lives. Along with this awareness, I hope to highlight everyday things that we can do, or should not do, that address these vulnerabilities.

I hope you enjoy your visit and don’t find me too preachy.
