Biography:

I'm a biological consultant who works mainly with birds, but during the past couple years I've been bitten by the bugs bug. Dragonflies especially, but it has spread to flies and other things that creep out my wife! All photos taken with Lumix ultrazooms -- currently using the FZ-150. I know only enough to be dangerous, so please feel free to correct any ID I may throw out there.
