Johnson County Science Café : May 14th

The Fun Obsession of Observing and Photographing Insects

Speakers: Betsy Betros, recently retired from Johnson County Department of Health and Environment

Date: May 14, 2013

Time: 6:30 pm

Location: Coaches Bar and Grill, 9089 W. 135th Street, one block west of 135th and Antioch, south side of 135th St.

Betsy has had a life-long love of nature and fell in love with insects early in life which ultimately led to a degree in Entomology from Colorado State University. She worked over 35 years in the environmental regulatory field and recently retired. In 2008, she published her first book, “A Photographic Field Guide to the Butterflies of the Kansas City Region.” Betsy will be discussing various aspects of the fun of chasing bugs with a camera and then writing a book on butterflies.

Weather permitting, we will adjourn outside at 8:00 to a backlite screen with a chance to observe and photograph insects. Bring your camera, smart phone, and/or magnifying glass. Betsy will bring copies of her book should you wish to relieve her of one.
