A quick note about permissions. I am more than happy for people to use my photos in presentations, educational materials, and websites, but please acknowledge me if you do. All imaes posted on websites should include a link to this blog. I spend a lot of time and effort photographing these insects, so please be kind and let people know where you got your images. If you wish to use them in print materials, please leave a comment below (you will be asked to enter your e mail address, which only I will be able to see) and I will contact you by e mail regarding permission. I keep the images I post here small and relatively low resolution to save space, but I can provide higher resolution, larger photos for print if desired.

  1. I have an image of a lacewing insect that looks very forbidding. Sharp pincers and about 4 inches long. How can I send an image to you??

    The link my Flickr website should bring you into the image of the insect.

Have something to say?
