I love nature photography, especially insects, spiders, birds and landscape. I live in Regina, Saskatchewan but am often in the nearby countryside, enjoying coulees, parks, etc. and all there is to see.
My big love for insects does not reflect my small amount of knowledge on them! Therefore I very much appreciate all the ID's and corrections given by those who know, and may I say "thank you" to all those who have and no doubt will continue to help.
Currently use Dennis Paulson's Dragonflies and Damselflies of the West for ID's, and Insects their Natural History and Diversity by Stephen A. Marshall for checking through keys, and using bugguide, to try my best at ID's before ID request for those I'm not positive on. Am also taking an entomology class at the U of R here.
