I am particularly excited to have James and Ted on hand, as both are superb field naturalists with years of experience in the habitats we’ll be exploring. For example, James is an expert on the Ants of Missouri, and Ted is… well, I presume you all read Beetles in the Bush. Right?
Ted will also be organizing a panel discussion on photography-in-social-media, a programmatic addition once we realized many participants are also bloggers.
Here is a map of BugShot attendees as of this afternoon (as drawn by TicketLeap):
The event will be held in St. Louis, and registrants predictably cluster near the center of the continent. Oddly, none of the registrants are from Missouri itself. Is Shaw not exotic enough to attract locals? Or am I drawing too many conclusions from a small sample size?
