Hi Bugman!
I am with the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History. We are writing a kid’s guide to Santa Barbara ”bugs” that will be available from our website as a free pdf. This will never be sold. We are trying to encourage young kids to get outside, explore, and learn about the natural world. Several of our guides are already available at You would be given credit for the images with links to your web site.
Thank you,

Hi Elaine,
What’s That Bug? will gladly allow you to use images from our archives for your free instructional and educational brochure.  Once you select the images you would like, please include a comment to the posting requesting permission.  We ask this because though we copyright our website content, the copyright to the images themselves belong to the photographers.  We reserve the right to post these submitted images on our website, in other What’s That Bug? publications, and to also authorize their use for educational and nonprofit projects.  As a courtesy, we would like to inform the photographers that their images are being used for these purposes, hence our request that your post the comments.
