His extensive field work and artistic background eventually led to the production of his book, Butterflies of Indiana: A Field Guidewhich he wrote, designed, and illustrated with his photographs. It was published by the Indiana University Press in November, 2012. The book garnered many positive reviews and accolades, including the 2013 National Outdoor Book Award for best Nature Guidebook." His presentation at our meeting will include discussion of his techniques and equipment, concluding with a selection of his favorite photos. Not to be missed!
