I'm a 25 year old autistic person living in New York (not the city, but I have lived there before!). Learning how to make friends as an autistic adult is not easy, but I am trying.

I love learning about, watching, and interacting with bugs. Over the past year I've gotten into macro photography, mostly of invertebrates. I usually say that I love movies, but I really just mean horror movies. I'm not sure what else there is to say about me. Hello!

Welcome to Wrong Planet!
Bugs are fascinating, as long as they're not biting you or invading your house. :)

I am not really a bug person. But I do like Praying Mantis. I come across them every once and a while. They are almost invisible. It is why they are such good hunters. This video looks at the mating ritual of Praying Mantis.
