Welcome to The Smaller Majority Blog

Welcome to The Smaller Majority, a nature photography blog. My name is Piotr Naskrecki, and I am an entomologist and a nature photographer; this blog combines these two passions of mine. Here you will find answers to such timeless questions as “What camera do you use?”, “How do you make them sit still?”, and “Aren’t you afraid that it will bite you?”

Although the focus of The Smaller Majority blog is on insects and insect photography, I will often stray towards other photography- and nature-related topics. I hope you will enjoy my musings, and please don’t hesitate to ask me questions.

    Finally finished going back through all your posts. I live in Northern Costa Rica and find your images and information on wildlife in my corner of the world very interesting. Your tutorial entries on macro photography are very helpful too. Keep up the good work.

    Enjoyed finally sitting down and reading through the blog entries. Though all were familiar from your Facebook posts, reading the mercifully brief (so many other blogs to read these days!) but informative text is a real pleasure.

    1. See here:

      You want to choose “full text” instead of “summary”.

      1. Done. Thanks for the tip!

    Hello! It would be nice to have an RSS channel for your blog. Cheers!

    1. I am still learning how to use WordPress, but an RSS Chanel is the next thing I want to add.

    2. OK, I have added a link for an RSS feed, please see if it works.

      1. It works, but would you consider changing the feed to include full posts instead of just a teaser? Makes it easier for those of us that live in our feed readers. I’m looking forward to reading your posts!

      2. Troy, I am not quite sure how to do it, I have no experience with RSS. But will try to figure it out.
