    i think i’ve mentioned this before, but my 5 year old son LOVES this site. it’s one of his favorites now.
    he says thanks for all the nice insect photos and that he would love to go insect “hunting” with you some day 🙂

    Hi Cyndi,
    Thanks, that’s so nice.
    I sometimes take my family insect hunting – I give my kids a digital camera each and they have a “photo contest”!! It’s a good way to get them more interested in nature.
    Best wishes,
