I am a 31 year old amateur photographer with an interest in entomology and nature. Professionally I work in finance in my hometown Saskatoon SK, Canada. I am still hoping to identify a few photographs previously posted here so please take a look at my images. The majority of the photos I post are taken by me on a Canon point and shoot digital camera.
I occasionally post photos taken with a mobile phone or another family member's camera. I also occasionally post ID requests on behalf of friends or family if they get a photograph of interest.

Please feel free to frass any images that have no value to the guide and thank you to everyone for the help identifying and correcting pictures that I do submit! I am not particularly accurate at identification though I do try to use a few field guides and booklets that I have received from friends, family and second hand bookstores.

Recently I have created a iNaturalist account and ofter post the same images I am uploading here in hopes to contribute to date in my local community.
