Biography:

I have enjoyed insects and spiders since my youth. My dad was very helpful in providing tools (butterfly net, mounting frames etc) and encouragement when I was not toting his camera gear. Now that my children are out in the world, I have found time to enjoy bugs again. The availability of relatively inexpensive digital cameras has also added enjoyment of my rediscovered hobby.
