BETSY BETROS has had a lifelong interest in nature, especially insects. After earning an entomology degree at Colorado State University, she served as an Environmental Science instructor at Johnson County Community College and in regulatory posts with Johnson County’s Environmental Services. Her love of photography and insects culminated in the publication of her highly regarded book, A Photographic Field Guide to the Butterflies in the Kansas City Region (2008). She is now retired, certified as a Kansas Master Naturalist, and is currently expanding her collection of photographs of moths and dragonflies. She also enjoys finding unusual insects in her prairie and sharing their photographs on Bugguide.net.
