Howdy! I'm an amateur entomologist from southwest Minnesota. I currently work full time for a wind turbine company, monitoring over 1,000 turbines across the U.S., as well as taking classes part time. I pland to pursue a career with some entomological base, although I'm not sure what. Naturalist, museum curator, forensic entomologist...
While this site is photography based, I myself am just learning this amazing skill. My entomology experience is based mainly on collecting, I was involved in 4-H entomolgy for many years. I now am focusing on the book smarts of entomology, now focusing mainly on Odonata after joining in on the Minnesota Odonata Survey Project.
I just jumped over the fence into dSLR photography, after starting with a hybrid point-and-shoot, then briefly a 35mm SLR.

Sony Alpha 200 dSLR
Sony Alpha DT 18-70mm f/3.5-5.6
Minolta AF 50mm f/2.8 Macro (1985 model)
