Biography:

Amateur nature photographer studying biodiversity in a city within a large metro area. Most of my subjects are very tiny, such as leaf beetles, true bug nymphs, aphids, very young spiders, hoppers, springtails, and unusually small wasps and flies. As development in my area increases in breadth and depth, I see fewer species but am always searching for unusual habitats to give me new perspectives.

I greatly appreciate the ID help others have given me here. I acknowledge these people on my website 1) in descriptions of the animals they've provided IDs for and 2) on a general acknowledgements page.
