About the content and creation of images on this website

Many of the insect images on this website were submitted by Texas residents for identification. We sincerely thank them for allowing us to use their images to help others with insect identification needs! We recognize that many of the images are not of professional quality, but they do let us show commonly submitted insects. Some of the images were taken by Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service and Texas A&M Department of Entomology faculty members.

The gallery called Pretty Insect Gallery is the work of the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service entomologist who operates this website.  

If you want to learn insect photography, consider attending one of the annual Bugshot workshops (http://bugshot.net/). Bugshot is taught by the premier insect photographers in the U.S.A.
