I've studied, reared, and photographed moths mostly since 1989, especially in east central and also northern Minnesota. In 2009 I published Moths and Caterpillars of the North Woods (Kollath-Stensaas, Duluth)(outdated and out of print). I've travelled a good many times to Costa Rica to photograph moths and other wildlife, especially in the Guanacaste Conservation Area (ACG) in the northwest corner of the country. We live in east central Minnesota and have explored largely within yards to a few miles of our doorstep.
