An entomologist with a particular interest in true bugs (Hemiptera), I am the national recorder for the Shieldbugs and Allied insects Recording Scheme and frequently use Flickr as a source of photographically verifiable records. If I add the tag 'addedhetrecscheme' to your photo, this indicates that I have extracted the data for the recording scheme.
I also use the tag 'aucrecschemeadded' to mark photos of interest to the Auchenorrhyncha Recording Scheme (see www.ledra.co.uk ).
Most of my photos are now with a Canon 7D and Tamron 90 mm or Canon MP-E 65 mm macro lenses. Recent bird images are taken with the Canon 100-400 mm II; older photos with the Canon 400 mm f5.6 or digiscoped using a Swarovski 65 mm scope and Nikon Coolpix 995.
Individuals can use any images presented in this gallery for their own private, non-commercial purposes, free of charge. I ask only that you let me know the details of your intended use and give credit where it's due.
Please contact me if you are interested in commercial use.

"Easily my favourite, most diverse/highest quality, British invertebrate photostream. I sway between aspiring to it and just giving up!"

"Wow! Such a stunning collection, I had to view the whole collection.
Far better than a reference book."

Nigel Jones says:
"Well, what can I say? Tristanba appeared on the Flickr scene in 2007 and in just a few short months he has built up a stunning collection of photographs of invertebrates. These include some of the best behaviour shots I have seen - see the photos of Podalonia hisuta excavating it's nest and carrying its prey. Great Stuff!"
