I am a retiree in West Virginia who loves nature and photography...especially when using my Olympus C2100UZI with the B-Macro lens. This joy and fascination has been continued with the purchase of an Olympus SP-560UZ (I can still use my B-Macro lens).

Photography has allowed me to see nature as I've never seen it before. My recent involvement with Bug Guide has provided me with a whole new perspective and learning curve. Please be patient with me, I'm a layman with very little knowledge of the terminology used here.

...BUT, I am researching and learning a lot. :-)
