Welcome to much of my life and spare time in the past few years. Taking the photos was the fun and easy part, resizing and creating thumbnails, eh, not too bad, but ID-ing and categorizing- WHOAH. I know not all of these are accurate in name, hence thr ID me please categories for each section, but thanks to the help of omniscient bug experts, this section will continue to expand in accuracy and detail.

USAGE: If you are interested in using any of these photos online, or purchasing a higher resolution version for print, please email me at kimsect (at) bugosphere dot com. BTW I have a soft spot for non profit nature-related organizations so am apt to donate to you guys to help expand interest and education.
