Biography:

I am an amateur entomologist,
I love being outdoors collecting insects, birdwatching and collecting fossils. The Insects I'm best at identifying are Tenebrionidae (especially from North America), Mantodea, and a decent number of Lepidoptera if I put my mind to it.
I also enjoy keeping, breeding, and rearing various kinds of insects.
