I am a crazy insect person! I got my BS in Entomology at UC Davis in 2017. Wherever I go, I am constantly looking out for any small creatures that come into my field of vision, to observe and photograph. I am thinking about doing research on the behavior of mantises and other arthropods with raptorial forelimbs.

Comments, identifications, and questions on my observations are always welcome and appreciated!

Current profile picture: a dead-leaf-mimicking mantis nymph (Stenophylla sp.) from Madre de Dios, Peru, on 3 Jan 2017. (No observation yet.)
