Mike Reese is a self-taught insect enthusiast. Now retired, he has been a cook, botanist, high school math teacher, golf and basketball coach, and high school librarian. While he says he’s no Lepidoptera expert (just a guy who “spent lots of time wandering around, getting my feet wet and looking for whatever happens to be flying by”), others might disagree. He first started learning about butterflies with his son by exploring every nook and cranny of the prairies, swamps, and other nature near their home in Wautoma. He’s actively involved in the North American Butterfly Association, for which he moderates the national butterfly sighting pages, as well as the Southern Wisconsin Butterfly Association. As a photographer, he’s captured images of butterflies, dragonflies, damselflies, tiger beetles, and robber flies.
