Dale and Elva Paulson will be presenting a new slide show ….. “Mess’n with BUGS!” For several years the Paulson’s have focused their cameras on a wide variety of insects and spiders. They are now ready to share the beauty of and their fascination with the bug world. Join us for an up-close look at these amazing little creatures. You’ll see a close up look at a robber fly’s compound eye, the beautiful variety of flies, and how a tumblebug builds and rolls a dung ball … and did you know you can easily tell a male mosquito from a female? Many insect behaviors will amaze you.
