I used to take pictures for art purposes, until a really good old friend taught,and showed me the wonderful world of insects.
And in that I saw a beauty I had never noticed before.
I will always be grateful for that,and now I am hooked.
So I hope you will be patient with me as I am just learning and can miss things sometimes due to the chaos and demands on me. Although I do want to learn and catalog my insects because it is one of the most relaxing things in my life.
