Having recently completed my M.Sc, I’ve continued to work at the University of Guelph Insect Collection where I study the systematics and taxonomy of Stilt-legged Flies (Diptera: Micropezidae) among other things. I took up nature photography as a hobby in 2007 in order to share the creatures I came across with family and friends, and now hope to share my photos with you.
I started this blog as a way to practice my scientific communication skills and to share some of my photos. Turns out I enjoy writing and sharing the fascinating world of insects and have embraced and incorporated social media into my day to day research. I hope you enjoy my meanderings through biodiversity, fly research, taxonomy and the various other topics I write about, and thanks for stopping by!
