I want to thank Rich Lund for helping me raise (18) Monarch Eggs and Caterpillars this year. My obsession started on 8-10-18. I released all 18 Butterflies thru August and September. His video series is excellent! I documented my experience and my Cats and Butterflies with my macro lens, and still have to go over my notes and ooooodles of photo’s. Oh my. Here’s one of the photo’s. I’ve also, photographed Milk Weed and hope to help the whole movement.

Here’s a few recent INSTAGRAM Images - During the summer I helped to raise 18 Monarch Eggs and Caterpillars and released 18 Monarch Butterflies into my backyard during August and September. I documented everything and took tons of closeup photographs which I hope to put up very soon. What an amazing experience! I hope to do it again next year.

Had a fun evening at Pine Knob seeing Todd Rundgren and Prairie and Kasim and Jesse and Greg and Michele, who are out touring with the Yesfestival. We've all been friends for over 30 years. Special thanks to Michele and Mary Lou. :)
(20) of my latest "Ethereal" flower images were just sent to the recent PDN Exposure Awards.
After being inspired by a great Charlie Rose interview with Brian Grazer of Imagine Entertainment, I created this one of a kind mixed media portrait and a facebook page trying to get Brian's attention. Finally, after 3 years, he found it and contacted me! Ironically, his new book "A Curious Mind" was just about to come out. It was perfect timing. My piece finally found it's home, in his Santa Monica home. :) I love that story. :)
Spent some time photographing Farrah from @LondonHadALittleLamb for an editorial feature in a local magazine. What a lovely home and beautiful babies! Great fun and I look forward to going back soon. www.LondonHadALittleLamb.com
