I am a retired scientist who has always had interests in nature (especially birds but really almost anything that catches my eye), photography and travel. This combination has resulted in a large collection of photos of Australian avi- and other fauna that has languished on ever larger hard-drives, unappreciated by anyone, even me. I have a relative few favorites that I show off when an opportunity presents itself, but the majority are "record shots" taken simply to record the fact that the bird/animal/insect was there, and to help my partner complete her bird lists accurately. Having recently discovered iNaturalist, I now have an opportunity to put a selection of those record shots to good use. May they contribute in some small way to a greater appreciation, and conservation, of nature. However, since joining iNat my interest in macrophotography of insects and spiders has significantly increased, having been inspired by some of the wonderful creatures shown here, and now I take many more photos of insects than of birds!
