I’m a recent graduate from the Univeristy of Connecticut’s Ecology and Evolutionary Biology department. I’ve always been curious about insects, but my serious interest in observing “bugs” began fairly recently, while taking a course in general entomology.

So far, all of my photos have been taken using a Panasonic FZ40, either on its own or with the help of Raynox’s DCR-150 and 250 macro conversion lenses. I’ve been really pleased with this camera, and the conversion lenses work great.
