Reminder – March 2013 FFPC Meeting this Week

Our meeting this week is on the 21st at 7:00 PM.  We’ll be meeting at the Forest Center.

Our speaker will be Tony Palmer, zoo entomologist.  Tony grew up in Eastern Ohio and attended Dana College where he attained a bachelors degree in biology.  His focus on entomology led to his being hired at Henry Doorly Zoo where he is a keeper at the Aquarium’s Butterfly and Insect Pavilion. Tony is getting ready to launch a statewide, citizen-science based butterfly monitoring program for Nebraska.

When not working, Tony is an avid photographer and can often be found in the field documenting insects and their behavior. Expect to learn some interesting facts about insects and how to photograph them.

Tony is also planning on bringing some specimens to photograph.  So bring your macro equipment, such as, tripod, macro lens, shutter release remote, etc.  It should be fun!

Remember to bring photos for the displays.  Judy Dye needs photos of Birds (for the Forest) and Cemeteries (for the Bellevue Library) for our upcoming photo displays. Please bring unframed, unmated 8 x 10 or 11 x 14 prints to the meeting. Be sure to label the prints with your name and subject, especially the location of the cemetery photos.

If you haven’t paid your dues, remember to bring your money to the meeting.

See you soon!
