The Art of Nature
These galleries present images from my explorations of nature with cameras and microscope. For me, they celebrate the remarkable beauty and diversity of living organisms.
Nudibranchs are shell-less relatives of marine snails, but their striking colors and beautiful forms are often more reminiscent of butterflies than gastropods.
On a super-macro scale, the surfaces of sea stars and other echinoderms present a stunning array of form and color.
It's a natural human trait to be captivated by the faces of other animals. In this gallery, I've explored the colorful and dramatic world of animal faces.
For several years I have been captivated by eyes, and by questions like 'how did eyes evolve?' and 'what do animals really see?' These photos reflect my quest to follow these questions.
Early in my photography career, I joined friend and mentor, Bruce J. Russell, to make films about crystals. Included here are some of our collaborative images showing spectacular crystals as seen with the microscope.
Some of the wonderful opportunities I have had to witness wildlife in nature are presented here in these biology art prints of birds and mammals
