City, state, country:

An enthusiast of all things science, I began my interest in entomology through macro photography. I curate hoppers here, on iNaturalist, and work on identifications on Flickr and various social media platforms including Reddit, Instagram, and Twitter.

I have a wide range of other interests and I continue to search for ways in which I can combine art and science.

I am an undergraduate student at the University of Delaware.

here are a couple species added to the guide (whether they be first photos or pages added because of a photo with other examples present on the guide):
