An enthusiastic amateur in Knoxville, TN. I was known as the "Bug Kid" in my family, then got sidetracked for the next 30+ years by birds and wildflowers. I have just recently rediscovered my first love. The addition of digital photography has definately provided an extra level of enjoyment.

I appreciate ID corrections to any of my photos. I am just learning, and and really appreciate the quality of Bug Guide. Many thanks to all of you who take your time to monitor this site, keeping it very useful.
