New England Orchids, Contributor

As my username suggests, I made this account to post photos of insects and spiders photographed on orchid flowers, specifically those in New England. Because my focus is almost always the orchid, many of the cropped images I post here aren't of the greatest quality. As such, feel free to frass images which don't add to the guide and/or are grainy.

I'm knowledgeable about orchid identification and taxonomy, but know very little about arthropods. Any help with identifying the photos I post (especially the pollinators) is greatly appreciated.
