I do not always subscribe to the photos I move, so I may not respond to questions/comments. If there is a concern, please email me.

Entomologist with USDA-APHIS-PPQ. Focus is on Orthoptera (mainly Acrididae) and various Coleoptera, but I have some experience with most orders. I've been getting more into Odonata recently, but have lots to learn with that group. I try to only include relevant pictures that add to the guide, but feel free to frass any of my images that aren't up to snuff.
