I had a good time at the Eastern Branch ESA meeting Bug fair this weekend–and I discovered a new artist! Dinah Wells works in watercolors, and does amazing work. Here she is painting away on a portrait of a cicada killer wasp.
I should say, she’s peacefully painting at a table between an exhibit of marmorated stink bugs on one side, and a hyperactive bearded lizard on the other side. And a bunch of very excited children milling around everywhere else. Never missed a beat, just kept right on painting. I wish I could focus that well!
Richard from the ESA made a really nice video summarizing the Bug World event–many cute kids and bugs, in addition to photos of Ms. Wells at work. Enjoy.
