Biography:

I am a amateur entomologist,
I love being outdoors collecting insects, birdwatching and collecting fossils. I'm planning on starting a collection of pressed plants that I have collected insects feeding on. The things I'm best at identifying are Tenebrionidae particularly western, Mantodea, Carabidae particularly Cicindelinae, most Hymenoptera and most Lepidoptera.
I also enjoy breeding and rearing various kinds of insects.
