Hoi Lauren, actually I'm a nature lover with a large macro lense around my neck rather then doing scientific research ;-) As a hobbyist I have an interest in hymenoptera and specifically in wild / solitary bees. I did make a book on our local Andrena ( ecology, how to identify the species , .... ) . We've been on our annual holyday in Rousson for quite some years now (hoping to add more years to that) and each year I photograph more species. Currently I think I have +500 identified species of that area on image (and about 3.000 of my own country - Belgium). I enjoy wandering around and make close up / macro shots which sometimes reveals interesting and surprising details which cann't always be seen that easy with the naked eye... so it's a photographic discovery trip after which start the quest to id the 'models' to species level ;-) and for which I can luckyly also count on the help of some specialists too ;-)
