I have always been interested in entomology (the study of insects) from a young age.  I cannot pinpoint the exact event that spurred this on, but I seem to think that it was either watching a television programme or reading an article in National Geographic as a young boy.  I think I saw/read about an entomologist discovering a new insect in some far off remote uncharted jungle somewhere.  It’s the outdoor explorer image that stuck in my mind.

Since then (about two years ago) I did nothing, not one step towards my dream.  I nearly started after reading ‘Climbing Mount Improbable‘ by Richard Dawkins.  It was the ‘A Garden Enclosed’ chapter that I read, re-read and re-read again.  It was a truly fascinating story on the life of a fig wasp _ no really you must read it, I recommend it.

So now I have started, I have decided to travel down the entomological journey.  I know nothing so I will be starting from scratch.  I’m using this weblog for my notes and experiences and I will be happy for readers to help.
