I am a crazy insect person! I got my BS in Entomology at UC Davis in 2017. These days I pin flies for @phycus and @shaun-winterton. 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 and functional morphology 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.)
