- Still round the corner there may wait
- A new road or a secret gate,
- And though we pass them by today,
- Tomorrow we may come this way
- And take the hidden paths that run
- Towards the Moon or to the Sun.
- — J.R.R. Tolkien
Call me Dustin Autry. I am a naturalist both in the professional (a wildlife biologist by training) and philosophical (a spirituality devoid of supernaturalism) senses of the term.
There are many who love nature in the abstract, but lack the access to experience or the knowledge base to fully appreciate the natural world. I hope my thoughts and experiences will inspire you to delve further into the world around us.
My current stomping ground began as the Upper Coastal Plain of Georgia but is now the Piedmont of Georgia; however, the whole world is fair game for my lens. Let me know what you think.
