Hi. I'm Michael Bedingfield. I've been exploring the natural areas around southern Tuggeranong since I moved here in 1992. I became interested in the local native plants when seeing the rich native floral diversity. Since then I've drawn many of them, joining Friends of Grasslands to share this interest. Later I began to document and photograph these plants, on Tuggeranong Hill Nature Reserve, the lower slopes of Mount Rob Roy Range, and the Murrumbidgee River Corridor. I also began photographing and drawing the local animals as well, large and small. Earlier in my life I had worked as a computer programmer and systems analyst in the Public Service. Then in 2014, Aaron Clausen and Michael Mulvaney asked me to help them in developing and administering the Canberra Nature Map website and the NatureMapr network. It has been a very rewarding experience.
