Thank you Tracy for your post.  Recently  i was reading articles on the decline of butterflies and other insects, so I decided to look into these issues and got hooked into their world.  A lot can be learned by obsevation alone.

If you have a chance, please post, this will help others to understand and appreciate the roles insects have in the biodiversity of our ecosystems. - Teresa

Hi, my name is Tracy, and I've been an insect lover as long as I can remember.  In my youth I always found bugs fascinating, and still do.  I love photographing insects with my digital camera...I often take it outside with me to catch spontaneous shots of critters big and small.  My most fave bug is the praying mantis--I've kept some as pets, taking them in when the weather goes cold in the fall so they have a few extra months of life that they wouldn't have in the wild.  Usually they are females who lay eggs and I always make sure to put the eggs back out into the yard where they hatch come spring.  At work, I am known as the bug girl....I'm forever rescuing bugs that get inside and putting them outside, or taking them home with me.  I even rescued a couple of black widows from where I work....and yes, some people think I'm crazy. "Live and let live" has always been my motto.  I try to persuade as many people as possible not to be "bug smashers".  Glad to find fellow bug lovers out there....there needs to be more of us!
