Photo of the Week – July 13, 2012

What a week!  My brain is full of insect lore and ecological questions.  More to come next week – and beyond – about what I learned from our visiting entomologists, and about our successful field day today (over 100 people showed up!). 

For now, it’s late and I’m ready for bed, but need to get a photo of the week posted.  So – here you go. 

Have a great weekend.
