So there were these awesome people with me last night @willow_tracy @teamscraps @iketina2012 @danspeeder

Looking for the lost ants of Florida. Going through historical unsorted collections at @fieldmuseum to find out what ant communities were like 60 years ago and how they’ve changed.

Just holding a 77 million year old juvenile Gorgosaurus libratus femur at @fieldmuseum #NBD You can slice the fossil and count growth rings to age them 🦖. Sue, the famous T-Rex here was in her early to mid thirties and that is considered to be an old animal. I always thought dinosaurs were long lived. Live and learn.

The pink flags mark artificial ant nests. This is the last set of 50 nests I placed in natural areas from the Everglades to the FL/GA border. 2000 nests placed - now all I have to do is go back in spring and pick them up.

This is a gynandromorphic velvet ant. Having all the best features wings like a male and a sting like a female. #dasymutillaoccidentalis

Another year at Kirkwood CA and longing for more days to enjoy it.

Some insects and pics from our farm in Costa Rica @tbirdgagne @gregoramma @willow_tracy

Cute little long tailed salamander (Eurycea longicauda) found in the Sharp Bingham preserve near paintrock AL by @surrealmacgown

Got to show my partner @willow_tracy where I get to work @fieldmuseum - we also had one of the best meals we had ever shared @blackbirdchicago.

Day late on headshot day - back in my DJ days when I still had hair on top and sported just the tip of a mullet. #scientisthavefuntoo

This wild 🐝 swarm was just outside our door this morning!
