Hi, my name is Molly, I am 23 and a recent graduate from the University of New Hampshire with a degree in Wildlife & Conservation Biology. I have loved insects and nature my whole life. I have recently been involved with native pollinator conservation research with the UNH Bee Lab and the Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge. I have also helped Don Chandler in organizing the UNH Insect Collection.

The majority of my photos have been taken with a Panasonic point-and-shoot, and as of May 2017 I have a Canon Rebel T7i (no macro lens yet), but I may also use my Sony camcorder or phone camera.

I realize that some of my photos (from about 2012 and earlier) are far too light- it was a problem with my computer monitor. I am going through and fixing any that I see. I apologize for the inconvenience!

I also contribute to Bug Life Cycles and Bumblebee Watch. I am a member of the ESA and Xerces Society.
