Pinned post

Hi, I'm Kelson (he/him), a hobbyist photographer in the Los Angeles area. I tend to shoot , & , and occasionally cosplay. Lately I've been taking a lot of nature photos for and posting some of the better ones here & on Flickr (

I also have a general account on Wandering Shop ( & more casual photos on Pixelfed (

Some from an exhibit, including a banded orange, a postman, an two morphos (they had SO many morphos)...

one of which decided to land on my leg and stay there. They had made it clear that we were not to touch the butterflies so as not to damage the wings with skin oils, so when it still hadn't left after a couple of minutes, I asked a staff member to remove it, and they coaxed it away with a sponge brush soaked in gatorade.

I kinda want to #paint this photo of #NorthernLights I took back in #2018, but it's too late at night for that right now. Maybe I'll feel inspired to do so tomorrow during the day instead. :)
