Hoping you can help me. Found a 2 inch simple,thin brown basic pattern caterpillar moving along in my house around the time of a snowstorm and put it into a jar with holes - it's eating spider plant leaves and leaving behind dark brown lumps... I toss a few drops of water in the cup and it seems to like that but I have to change the cup now and again. It curls up into a ball when I disturb it... I thought it was a gypsy moth but it's got all brown spots. The balls of wet lumps are recent and I have no idea what it's doing... and can't put it outside in the winter snow.
Very cool web site Sam!

Hello, I am Sherry Best, gallery director of the Alice C. Sabatini Gallery at the Topeka & Shawnee County Public Library. We're producing an art exhibit about insects this summer, and we will have an educational and experience component with a science focus. We'll have images on lift-up panels, with questions and fun facts about insects. We'd like to use your photos of the Abbott's sphinz caterpillar on grapes on the section about pattern and camouflage. We will of course credit you as the photographer and reference your site as the source. I can be reached at sbest (at) tscpl (dot) org. Thank you.
As art, and as a reference resource - this is the finest collection of caterpillar photos I have ever seen. It's an honor to view them. Thank you for your generosity in sharing.
I am humbled. Wonderful work.
Sam - we LOVE your work!!! Looking forward to the opening!
Hi. I found a green caterpillar in my town and wanted to identify it, and need some help. It most closely resembles your incredible picture of Peridea angulosa, except the light stripe fades for 1/4 of it's body, and it has a little triangular hump at the back. Please email. Thanks! Annika
Your photos are just amazingly beautiful- first time I had a chance to take a look.
I'm writing you from a Spanish Sunday magazine. We'd like to reproduce some of your pictures. Could you please tell me if that's possible? Best,
I am an old fisherman looking for good pictures of Caddis and Mayflies for presentation at free fly tying classes. Your pics are fantastic. I love the dragonfly and the Caddis Larvae peeping his head out of his case. DW
I saw your show at Broadmoor and found it to be an amazing blend of science and art. I picked up your card and now I frequent your site. After looking at your photos, I feel like I've just come back from a visit to another planet. Any plans on publishing a book (or two) of your work? Thanks for sharing such beautiful photos!
superb images, will check your site on regular basis.
I am really glad I ran into your galleries. All I can say is phenomenal! I will definitely be back to check them all out when its not so late.
This work is amazing and I would love to find out about prices and availability.
Sam, Your compositions are simply beautiful and your subjects fascinating! Amazing work!
The Newton Conservators minutes mentioned your site. Great photos!
You are using a digital camera?
How do you manage all the black backgrounds? Even at night I'd imagine there would be something else back there. Do you cut out the image you want and past in on black? I only very rarely get a background like that.

Stunning images, Sam. I followed the links you posted on the MassLep list, and I am ever so glad I did. Thanks for sharing your work.
I´m glad to find you here on PBase Sam, I really enjoyed your caterpillars gallery, what a plesure to view at your so fine compositions, thanks for sharing with us, Rosemarie :o)
Your Dad waxed poetically about your website. How correct he is. Truly fantastic photos. I enjoyed the incredible detail of each photo and the eye of the artist who took the photo. The spiders next to Ned's aquarium were fascinating. Keep up the great work.
I absolutely love your work!! Beautiful Photography.
These are phenomenal photographs.Your dad pointed me proudly to the website, and I've been going through your work with an appropriate sense of wonderment --at the life potrayed, and at the portraits. Congrats, and I hope I see you again soon.
I saw your insect photographs and they are amazing...and then hearing how you interact with your subject, makes me want to call you the "insect whisperer." You turn insects into art.
Wellcome and congralations for your high quality work. JC, France.
Sam--wonderful photos. I showed off my favorites to some friends, who were quite impressed. The one of the jumping spider on the magazine is really cool for showing scale too. Well done! Court also though the site was great!
Wellcome on pbase. Hope you will like it :)!
