Welcome to The Sam Wells Entomology Page. This picture is of me collecting insects just below Long's Peak in the Colorado Rockies. In the posts to come I hope to provide useful, perhaps entertaining, and, if possible, meaningful posts about insects. I am not a professional photographer or essayist but hopefully some of the insects you'll see and learn about here will be worth your visit. I also hope that they'll motivate you to get out and discover them for yourself. I have been enjoying these small creatures all of my life. They have taken me to many places around the world. They have a remarkable ability to enrich any life that takes the time to look at them in any detail. Enjoy.
