I am a retired Physics teacher. I started to observe the insects and learn how to take insect pictures since the summer of 2014. Currently I am interested in studying the babies of the insects, especially the nymph of the earwig and cricket. The life cycle of a moth is also very interesting for me to study.
We have a community lake nearby which may affect the insects that I can find. Besides, the soil, organic fertilizer and vegetable plants that we bought from the stores may also help to carry the insects from other states.
I would like to thank all the experts, editors and contributors
of BugGuide who help with the ID and comments.
