I am 61, and a Scoutmaster with Boy Scouts. As a friend of nature and outdoorsman all my life, I have been curious and exited about creatures large and small. Teaching children to see the world of nature is a passion of mine, and I am a regular contributor to classroom science with caterpillars, reptiles, amphibians, and specimens for kids of all ages to look at, handle, and learn. I have students making insect collections come out to my 50 ac and capture their entire collection in short order, there is such a variety here.

Any photos I submit to Bugguide are free and clear of any permission needed to copy.....just help yourself.
