I was required to make a insect collection by Mr. Hubbard, my 10th grade Biology teacher in 1964-65. I've been fascinated with insects ever since. I haven't had any further education in Entomology due to life and career path. Now that I'm retired, I LOVE to seek them out and take photos. I'm traveling as much as possible in my remaining years, building a virtual collection. So far, I've visited all of the 50 states, Puerto Rico, and D.C. It keeps me out of the bars (mostly).
