Biography:

I used to be afraid of spiders, and i didn't like insects at all untill recently when a friend and I started a yearly contest to see who could get the most pictures of different species of wild animal. I am amazed at the number of different insects and have come to enjoy seeing these little guys up close on film. The pics only count if I can identify the species so I am using this site which has helped a lot. Thanks to everybody who helped me get new id's.
