Biography:

What started out as just curiosity about the identity of a few back yard beetles has developed into a full blown hobby. I work in a nonscientific field (Law). I spend a couple of hours on weekends photographing bugs for my virtual bug collection. I find most of the insects and other bugs in the empty lots and parks in Clark County Washington. I pretty much photograph anything that moves. From time to time I going and camping outside my area. I normally do not collect specimens. However, if there is something in my geographic location that you would like me to look out for, let me know and I would be happy to help.
