62nd ESA (Entomological Society of America) meeting in Portland, Oregon a success!

​​Bugs, Bugs, Bugs!
The Entomological Society of America (ESA) just wrapped up its 62nd annual meeting in Portland, Oregon this past week. The meeting was hosted by President Frank Zalom (UC-Davis) with a near record 3,600 participant entomologists from all 50 states and scores of countries taking advantage of  more than 100 symposia and 2,800 individual papers and posters.

Yours truly received a Distinguished Service Award to the ESA Certification Program during the Plenary Session on Sunday night.  My dear mother Peggy was there to see me receive it.  She charmed everyone. It was wonderful to have her there with me.

Here are a few photos.

 And a little time for some fun - sight seeing along the way. (Multnomah Falls-28F! No bugs here!)
