I thoroughly enjoy being outside experiencing all that nature has to offer. My primary interests are insects and arachnids. This obession began when I was given a macro lens that attaches to my phone. When searching for really small things in my backyard to photograph, with my new lenses, we ran across a Red-banded leafhopper. Although I was amazed at the colors on this little guy, I was even more amazed that I had lived on this property for 15 years and had never noticed them before. Since then, almost everyday I’m out taking photos of tiny creatures. After having done this for several years it is astounding how frequently I find a “new to me” species. As my knowledge has increased with regard to insects so has my interest in host plants and the relation between the two. Nature’s diversity is truly incredible.
