Maybe these guys aren't so bad...


In America these guys are called yellowjackets. They swarm around your picnic, sting you , and are a general nuisance. Australians refer to them as "Europeans Wasps" and tend to become a little panicky when one is around. Not quite high-pitched squeal, but getting there. Which is surprising, because there are way more poisonous critters in Australia than there are in the States.

At any rate, everyone can agree that this wasp is nothing compared to the absolutely terrifying insects described on this page...

Scary Bugs!

Taking care of business

We've finally gotten around to posting a bunch of photos from the World Beard and Moustache Championship. Which took place on Sept. 1st. So we're only 4 months late.

Birthday Present from Cell

In reference to this little gem by alex:

The pictures posted there are great, but I think this one captures the spirit of my collaboration with Gary a little better...

After a long day of collecting high quality TIRF data, Gary just happened to pass out on my couch.

In other news, we're back from australia and will be updating the blog soon. Tons of cool photos of animals, food, and people. Plus the usual supply of not-so-witty comments.
