I have been a bug guy since 2nd grade. Back in Texas, in Victoria since 2004, I am a retired Business Prof. Mary and I are Texas Master Gardeners, Texas Master Naturalists, Mid-Coast Chapter; and active in South Texas NPSOT and the Xerces Society. I have been an AgriLife Entomology Specialist since 2010 and lecture on native pollinators and their conservation. As a taxonomist I do pretty well on butterflies, and most moths. Beetles are a challenge. I am getting better on bees and wasps so long as I have my trusty Canon with me and can get the critters to sit still long enough to focus. I still collect some specimens but try to catch, photograph, and release when possible. Mary and I write a biweekly TMN nature column for the Victoria Advocate.
