I am a casual hiker who enjoys snapping photos of interesting creatures and other things I find along the trail. Currently, my route of choice winds through Irvine Regional Park, Orange/Orange County, CA, mostly because I'm relatively close, but equally because I find the most material there. You can see by my observations I cast a wide net: birds, insects, mammals, snakes, plants, scat, tracks; although, if I had to choose, I'd say birds of prey, snake, and coyote sightings are the observations that really make my day. I'm a Very New photographer. I would politely refer to my camera as "vintage," and I keep a respectful distance from my subjects by shooting with a 100-400mm lens. My profile picture is a Sacken's Velvet Ant--the insect that brought me to iNaturalist in July 2022.
