I am a 16 year old birder, butterflier oder, and moth-er . Recently, I am interested in moths, and have been submitting many photos to bugguide. I live in Raleigh, NC. Feel free to drop me an email! I appreciate all the help I have been getting, and try my best to give back by identifying things that I am good at, eastern dragonflies, butterflies, and damselflies, as well as eastern moths.
