Tom Murray’s wildlife adventures began in the small wood lot of his backyard childhood home located in Fitchburg, Massachusetts. Now, as then, he is ever 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, and in the last several years he has concentrated his surveying and photographic efforts 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.
