Speaker: Pam Piombino has developed a love of and substantial knowledge of moths. Although more than 400 of her photos appear in Insects and Kin of the Colorado Front Range by Lynn & Gene Monroe, Pam considers herself an amateur photographer. Her photos are impressive, but she'd prefer not to be asked about technical details. Pam lives in Boulder County and spends a lot of time with the Native Plant Society as well as doing moth surveys for The Nature Conservancy and Colorado Parks and Wildlife.

Program: You can add a lot of variety to you portfolio by photographing moths. There are about 160,000 species worldwide and 5000 in Colorado. Compare that with 17,500 and 140 species of butterflies worldwide and in Colorado.
