Avid "Birder", "Butterfly-er" for many years, "Bugs" seemed like the next step! After photographing birds with 200mm and larger lens for a few years, a smaller and less weight camera was a big relief to arthritic thumbs. Also have been a "miniaturist" for over 20 years and always fascinated with tiny objects. What a world is opened up with macro photos which capture the beauty and wonder of insects. No degrees or schooling in the field of biology or entomology, just curiosity and interest.
