I want to know a name for everything that lives on my farm. I collect photos of insects, plants and animals I encounter there. I appreciate the help I receive here on BugGuide.

In my other life I am a public school teacher, director of viral YouTube videos, executive director for a non-profit, leader of an international online professional community with over 2900 members. I am gifted at creating community and have an eye for marketing. I have also survived a national political cyber-bullying attack so don't believe everything you read. Peace and love!
