Here is a list of bug folks or sites that we LOVE!
American Bird Grasshopper (Schistocerca americana) in flight
Alex and his wife Jo are good friends of ours and we LOVE doing photography workshops, BugShot, with them. AND they make really cool kids. Oh and his photography is really awesome too! We are lucky to have people in our lives that inspire us with bug creativity!
Piotr Naskrecki also does BugShot workshops and can I tell you every time I got to his blog I spend WAY too much time. Even if I have already read the blog I reread and am amazed by his life, what he gets to experience, and his images. There may not be a more creative human being in the bug world!
We go to Bug Guide when we want to ID a bug we find. There are a bunch of field guides out there like the Kaufman Field Guide to Insects of North America, and the Peterson Field Guide to Insects of North America.
