I've been a naturalist since I was a kid in the Okanagan Valley, British Columbia. I'm retired now but, for many years, was Curator of Entomology at the Royal British Columbia Museum in Victoria, BC. I'm still a researcher there. Although I study many kinds of insects, my favourites are dragonflies and robber flies. Before starting work at the RBCM in 1980, I was a biologist in BC Parks and a lecturer and museum curator at the University of BC. I do not post my own observations but concentrate on identifications, mainly of robber flies but often of other insect groups as well.
