Garter snake, with colorful tongue, eye slightly cloudy and blue, one of the first signs of the skin-shedding process. Native snakes are extremely beneficial to your life-support system, please do not harm them and please teach others to control their fear and value biodiversity. Thank you.

I started out as an artist, became a pilot, and ended up where I am now: nature photographer and educator. Being a pilot allowed me to observe the Earth and humanity’s impact on it from 30,000 feet for many years. It allowed me to experience different cultures and to see the world through many lenses.
