Tom Murray's wildlife adventures began in the small woodlot of his childhood home in Fitchburg, Massachusetts. Now, as then, he is turning over stones, looking under decaying logs, sifting through leaf litter or scouring the shores of wetlands in search of insects, snakes, frogs and salamanders. Tom enjoys photographing all wildlife, but in the last several years he has concentrated on insects. For Tom insects and photography are serious fun; he "works" at it 365 days of the year. His knowledge is built on countless hours of time spent in the field and in the companionship of fellow naturalists. He has traveled extensively throughout the United States to see and photograph wildlife, particularly butterflies and birds. More recently, his travels have included Central and South America. Tom is a regular contributor/editor to www.BugGuide.net, and with the assistance of other amateur and professional entomologists has documented previously unknown distribution ranges for numerous insects as well as new county, state and North America records. He regularly leads insect walks for local nature groups. His photographs have been published in text books, magazines, field guides and many other print and internet sources.
