I am strickly an amateur when it comes to insects and bugs and such. Although I've always been fascinated by nature and all of it's wonders, I've only recently began trying to learn the names and natural history of the smaller of the amazing creatures that share the planet with us. This site has been extremely helpful with that and I thank all of those here who so willing share their expertise and knowledge.
