Biologist and birder who is trying to expand knowledge base to several other taxons.
If an image does not contribute to the guide please feel free to frass.
I am using bug guide primarily for three reasons: to help me identify my photographs, to learn invertebrate identification, and to contribute to the knowledge base that bug guide provides.
If you want me to try to photgraph any particular type of bug in southwest MN and you don't mind helping me sort through them and probably giving me tips on finding them; feel free to give me a quest.
