My interest in insects began around the age of 5. I really didn't do much with this interest until I bought a DSLR camera in 2008. I am still learning how to take better pictures of these creatures. It is my goal to show others God's creativeness in His design of insects.

I have taken pictures in Poland, Germany, Italy and the United States (Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Tennessee, Georgia and Florida). I am not an expert of identification, but am always willing to learn.
