Dear Ms. Schimming,
We are two biology students participating in undergraduate research at Delaware Technical Community College. Our research focuses on determining the dietary habits of a maternity colony of big brown bats in South Eastern Pennsylvania. During the course of our research, we have found that their diet includes insects of the order Ephemeroptera. We would like to request your permission to use your picture on our research poster for a preliminary presentation of our results.
Thank you for your consideration. We look forward to hearing from you.
Kaliopi Bousses, Liedeke Sweitzer
