First off, thanks to University of Michigan Ecology & Evolutionary Biology Department for the shout-out on their alumni news page.
Fittingly, a little ecology is also what has been keeping me from paper cutting this month. You can follow the action (once we get a more stable internet connection) at my lab’s 2012 field blog.
We have caught a boatload of fence lizards in our tour of the south.
Males can be really quite beautiful–this one is all full of testosterone and ready to mate.
In a week or so I will return to Pennsylvania for some lab work and hope to start up the paper cutting on my return! First in the queue: a paper indigo snake. Oh yes.
