I live in Charleston, SC. I have a side-interest (a nice outdoor hobby I might add) in insects and I've just started to explore the area. I have a small but growing collection. I am focusing on lepidoptera lately as SC species are under-represented. I've started to get interested in some of the small stuff out there, especially parasitic wasps. My photos are kind of amateur since I use a point-and-shoot Casio digital but I have started to use a microscope and scanner to photograph my little stuff.
