Biography:

About 15 years ago, on a whim, I began shooting photographs of insects just for fun. Fifteen years later, and here I am still doing it. I did a quick calculation and came up with a number of around 200,000 (conservatively) shots that I have clicked off. I know a fair about about insects, but I am far from being any kind of specialist. Up until now, I have kept the whole enterprise to myself, but I recently have been feeling the urge to share. Most of the pictures I am showing are my own personal favorites. I may from time to time request an ID.
