Please join me in celebration of Earth Day this Thursday night at the California Academy of Sciences for a “Dirty, Earthy NightLife.” I am delighted to be presenting a slideshow of my photography entitled Eye to Compound Eye: The Art and Science of Insect Photography.

Incorporating anecdotes from biology, ecology, and cultural anthropology, I will share my adventures in insect photography in the hopes of inspiring you to pick up your camera and look at insects with a new lens.

WHEN:     Thursday, April 26, 8:30pm

WHERE:   Cal Academy, African Hall

55 Music Concourse Drive, San Francisco
