I've taken a few of my favorite pictures and made them into nice desktop backgrounds. It's really easy to set one of these as your background. Just click the link closest to your screen resolution below a picture to save it to your hard drive. Then (if you're using Windows XP) right-click on your desktop, select "Properties," go to the "Desktop" tab, hit the "Browse" button, select the image from wherever you just saved it, and click "Apply" and "Okay".

Your screen resolution is .

Snowden Mountain in the Brooks Range, viewed here from the north, is one of the most impressive peaks along the Dalton Highway. It's coloration is striking in the evening light out of the west.

I went to great comical lengths to swipe this spinner from the air with a little aquarium net I carry with me while I'm fishing. Siphloplecton basale spinners fly fast and high over the riffles, and there are never very many of them, so they're difficult to catch.

A thick mating swarm of Tricorythodes mayfly spinners hovers the West Branch of the Delaware near Hale Eddy one early fall morning. View the picture full-size and you'll be able to make out the wings and tails on most of those little white dots.

This was one of many such clouds visible all up and down the river. The mayflies were impressive, but the trout did not hold up their end of the bargain -- there was not a rise in sight.

I got several really nice pictures of this spinner. I also collected a female on the same trip.

This Isonychia bicolor nymph from the Catskills displays the prominent white stripe sometimes characteristic of its species. This is the first such specimen I've photographed, because members of the same species in the Upper Midwest have a more subdued stripe (and were once thought to be a different species, Isonychia sadleri). The striking coloration on this eastern nymph is more appealing.

This is my favorite underwater picture so far. It shows a bunch of Simuliidae (black fly) larvae clinging to a rock and swinging in the fast current. There are also at least four visible mayfly nymphs, probably in the family Baetidae.
