    Greetings Butterfly and Insect Enthusiasts!

    Hope everyone is getting out to enjoy the beautiful spring weather as well
    as the flora and fauna!

    The Austin Butterfly Forum is thrilled to have Betsy Betros speak to us via Zoom this Monday, April 26 @ 7 pm (CST)

    Betsy will speak to us about her most impressive guide to the butterflies
    of the butterflies of the Kansas City region and what she's been up to
    since!

    Betsy Betros. 2008. A Photographic Field Guide to the Butterflies in the Kansas City Region. Kansas City Star Books, Kansas City, MO. 407 pp., more
    than 1,100 photographs.

    Title: Writing a Butterfly Book and then Coping with the Aging Process!

    Bio: I Retired after 35 years involved with environmental protection regulations. Majored in Entomology back in the day at Colorado State University, but focused on aquatic insects. Decided to start learning terrestrial insects, and haven’t stopped despite the creaks and groans of aging!

    I started the seemingly insane idea of writing a book on the butterflies of
    the Kansas City Region when I turned 50 and then 4 years later it was published. I then embarked upon a journey to study and photograph all the
    other bugs and spiders in my area. As arthritis got the better of me, I
    have continually modified my approach to bug photography to adapt

    Betsy's guide was very warmly reviewed in the Journal of the LepSoc: https://bit.ly/3apFrbn

    ==================================================================================

    Our May 24 Zoom meeting will be ‘Spring’ Show and Tell, patterned after the successful Show and Tell meeting we have each November. It's open to all Austin Butterfly Forum Facebook site participants and club members.



    Participants will have 10 minutes or less to share. This will be a fun and *informal* chance to let us know about your latest discovery, something
    you've learned, or a favorite location for butterflies and moths. You
    might show butterfly and moth images from your garden, or talk about almost
    any butterfly-related topics. For instance, Brian Abel wants to show off
    our new Butterfly Forum website.



    Please contact the coordinator, Dan Hardy, at dhh787@yahoo.com before the
    24th to arrange a practice run-through of your presentation. (This will
    help minimize any glitches during the meeting.)
