I've been an amateur nature photographer all my life. However, when the digital cameras and their technology arrived, I'm now taking more photos than were previously possible! for me I enjoy photographing all of the natural world, which of course, includes insects and spiders. I have some that I cannot identify, even though I have quite a collection of insect field guides. I AM SO HAPPY TO HAVE FOUND THIS SITE! Seems to be the place to go for insect IDs and equally so, to share our mutual sense of wonder and enjoyment of insects. And good humor too!
