Deep Space, Deep in the Forest
The foreground is a several minute exposure… The stars alone (and the meteor) is a vertical panorama of 3 shots (stacked 5x for noise reduction)… The Galaxy is a stitched panorama, made of 8 sets of 5 photos each… Total of 57 combined.

Google is definitely a woman, it starts suggesting things before you can even finish your sentence.
That must mean Bing is a man, tries to think it’s superior and does a horrible job with pleasing its user.

Something I’ve been working on over in the Peabody. These are some progress pictures of our attempts at painting an accurate version of a Torosaurus. The model was made by the museum preparator, Michael Anderson, and I’ve been working with him to repair some of the seams and do the painting of the skin. It’s still not done, but you kind of get the idea with this. More pictures once I’m finished! :)

Oh, amazing planet: Stunning portraits of Canadian moths by photographer Jim des Rivières. A fine addition to these extraordinary photos of animals like you’ve never seen them before.
The grandeur of life is evident in a big way when it comes to moths. Even if that grandeur does sometimes involve landing on my head near my back porch light.

I ‘was’ studying to be a biologist in college. If I had the level of self knowledge as I do now… I would’ve loved to become a mycologist. Or a focus on plant biology in some way. Le sigh…being a backyard farmer is a close second.
