BugShot 2011

I’m sitting in the airport in Calgary, waiting for the last leg of my southward journey home and enjoying some fine high-speed internet, of which I have been cruelly deprived for weeks.  Our collection efforts in Kug were great, and I’ll be posting about the trip soon, but I have NEWS that I simply must share.

As many of you know, there is an upcoming gathering of bug macrophotography epicness: BugShot 2011.  This event promises to be full of awesome and I have been holding my breath for weeks waiting to find out if a student fee waiver would enable me to go.


I am TOTALLY GOING.  (Now I just have to figure out how to get there :-P).


My portfolio submission for the waiver is right here on Flickr. Thanks a million to all the people who took the time to look at, and offer their opinions on, my “short” list of candidates!

    I am also looking forward to meeting you – and Ted. And two of the three instructors. Everyone really. 🙂
