Insecta-Palooza at Sonoma State
Yesterday, I went to an insect fair at Sonoma State. The day started out a bit cold, but it warmed up. Perfect weather!
I learned about how ambrosia beetles made Sudden Oak Death even worse. I met Kathy Biggs, who writes the dragon fly books. I attended a talk by Liam O'brian about Mission Blues. It was a wonderful day.
Frederique Lavoipierre, who organized the event, showed my film, In the Company of Wild Butterflies, and asked me to introduce it. I was honored, of course!
The picture is of a woman who got close up and personal with a walking stick. She said that she is just like a little kid when it comes to insects. I say that people of all ages can enjoy invertebrates. I do!
