With Jim Wiker, the immensely helpful co-author of The Skippers of Illinois and reigning authority on the handsome and fascinating, root-boring moths in the genus Papeipema; and Don Miller, education director of the superb Severson Dells Nature Center, great naturalist, and generally good guy. These fellas showed Bob a fine time in the Midwest, assisted by plenty of mosquitoes, chiggers, and ticks. Photo by Sally Agnew.
