Bats, Bats and more Bats

Kendra and I had the opportunity to join Liz Braun de Torrez from Boston University this last Saturday night. Liz is working on her Ph.D. and focussing on bats that are feeding on insects in Pecan groves. We had fun photographing four different species, Red Bat, Cave Myotis, Evening Bat, and Eastern Pipistrelle. Here is an example of each bat.

About Me

John is Curator of Entomology at the University of Texas at Austin. Kendra is a Professor at St. Edwards University in Austin. John has focused on dragonflies and damselflies in his career. He has two books Dragonflies and Damselflies of Texas and the South-central United States and The Damselflies of Texas. He is currently working on the Dragonflies of Texas. John and Kendra are also currently both working on revising the Peterson Field Guide to Insects of North America. We have had the opportunity to travel extensively throughout Latin America, Africa and other parts of the world where we enjoy taking photos of pretty much anything that will allow us to capture its image. We are lucky enough to be able to teach students about the amazing biodiversity we see and to travel and photograph together.
