    I love observing all sorts of insects

    and their behaviors! Just as long as they can't fly around or run around really quickly- fast movements still frighten me. I don't know much about them, they just fascinate me.

    Love At First Sight

    I am studying chemical engineering but have always had my heart in entomology. Whoever knew such tiny creatures, almost insignificant at times, form the largest phylum in the animal kingdom! As a kid i collected dead insects and stored them in boxes in my room, until my mum...

    Insects Are Interesting

    I enjoy observing insects, especially beetles. My daughter and I like to catch the large purplish black ground beetles that come out at night in our area and measure them, we do the same with night crawlers. In the summer we spend a lot of time looking for bugs in our yard and...
