I am a retired biology teacher and naturalist in the Pikes Peak Region. Most of my recent research has involved the response of insects to forest thinning. But I also write fiction, poetry, and music. I find that very few readers care about Natural History, but I sprinkle it in anyway. Some people seem to like my poetry, and lots of people download my music, probably to steal it, I guess. I don’t really know why I do this, beyond the fun of the daily creation. Hope you find something to like.
