I am currently retired from the USDA. I worked for 23 years as an insect identifier at the plant introduction station in Brownsville Texas. Have interests in all types of wildlife photography. Special interests in Cerambycidae, a few Diptera families and recently the moths. Don't consider myself proficient in any group as I gave away most of my library when I retired as well as about 20 boxex of insects (my personel collection) to Ed Riley at Tex A&M.
