I have spent some time volunteering and browsing The Monte L. Bean Life Science Museum of Arthropods at BYU's campus in Provo, Utah. I am currently living in Orem, Utah, where I'm enjoying the fauna of the great Rocky Mountains. I have a well kept, organized and steadily developing insect collection that never has been or will be neglected; I try to give my blog the same attention when life allows for it.
I have a liking for all insects, but I tend to apply most of my focus on Coleoptera. Beetles represent the largest order of insects. This group also represents about a fourth to a fifth of all animals according to many sources. I'm currently learning taxonomy of a variety of other creatures as I find new targets of photography.
