I am enthusiastically trying to photograph and identify every insect(and other wildlife) in my city. This should be a never ending adventure. I have also expanded to areas nearby and I have a section on nature further afield including Joshua Tree, the Mojave, Northern CA, and more.

This site has been of considerable help and I am glad to be part of its community.

I am creating a website for my personal education.:
I welcome corrections and id's I am missing.
