My name is Crystal. I am 25 years old. Since the end of my college education I began to explore the natural world around me. Seeing the bugs and birds in the little county in New York I live in inspired me to start photographing and learning about them. After exploring my own location, I brought my camera along with me during my travels to photograph the bugs and birds I saw along the way. I hope that through this blog others will be able to appreciate these awesome creatures as well!
