I have moved to

This blog is about animal photography and the associated names and identification. There shall be more posts on insects than anything else, although I would post photographs of animal from other class such as arachnida. I may write a little about the animal, if I have the information, and will try on a best effort basis to identify it. Comments and correction by readers are most welcome!

I like the idea of a universal mean of grouping animals into groups based on their characteristics and scientific information, taxonomy. Whenever possible, I only use obligatory taxonomy. Eventhough the names appear complex to me, it sounds very cool. For example, the name Canis lupis familiaris sounds much more awesome than just dog. I hope I have the time to learn a little about Latin and Greek words, since the nomenclature of the taxonomy uses this language.

I am not a scientists, nor an entomologists. However, I will try my best to be as accurate as possible with regards to science. As I have a career, which I also have great passion in it, I would not be able to post as often as I wish for this blog. Please subscribe to the RSS feeds to get updates so that you don't have to come back here on and off to check for new updates.

The photograph below is a queen weaver ant, Oecophylla smaragdina, trying to protect her nest as I approach to photograph her.

Thank you for visiting!
