Please contact me regarding custom print orders, I'd love to hear from you! If you see an image on my Flickr photostream that is not in my updated gallery, email me at amackertodd@gmail.com and I'll happily add it.

The images in this portfolio were made for the Meet Your Neighbours global biodiversity project, of which I'm a proud contributor.

This interesting plant is called Squawroot (Conopholis americana). They are a parasitic, non-photosynthesizing plant from the family Orobanchaceae. The common name that I prefer is 'Bear Corn', as bears living in the Smokies feast on this plant in order to cleanse their system.
