Getting down on hands and knees to look for the little creatures of the forest (and the backyard) has been one of my favorite things since I was a little creature myself.
These days I am a tropical ecologist, teaching undergraduate students at the School for International Training's study abroad programs in north Queensland, Australia, and Indonesia, and a macro lens has allowed me to capture some of the little creatures more permanently.
I think it’s important to document the biological components of our world, now more than ever. Even in relatively well-documented Australia and Bali, there are always surprises waiting.
