A Nice Gesture

D. Rentz and Dylan Fluker and his painting. (Gary Wilson photo)

At the recent celebration of publication of my guidebook to Australian katydids, my young friend, Dylan, presented me with his water-colour rendition of a Dung Beetle.

Dylan Fluker is 7 years old and has a keen interest in insects. He examines the plants in his and his grandparents gardens for new discoveries. His other talents include drawing and painting the items revealed in his explorations. This painting now hangs in my lab. Thanks Dylan!
