As an entomologist, my dominant interest is in insects, with a focus on true bugs (Hemiptera), grasshoppers and allies (Orthoptera), and flies (Diptera). That being said, I have a general interest in the flora that supports the diversity of insects, along with Ontario vertebrates in general.

While many of the observations are strictly digital, some of the material posted here is also represented by specimens at the University of Guelph Insect Collection ( for future reference and study. Depending on my timing, some of my identifications are quick, off the cuff, and may be identifiable beyond what I have given. If you want me to look at an identification further, just tag me in a comment and I will try and respond in a relatively short time frame.
