Panorama that Google generated of the flooding in our Phoenix-area apartment complex. It was the wettest day in Phoenix history. Roads flooded, there were land slides, and schools even closed for rain days.

The Google​ “Auto-Awesome” photo edit of our campsite this weekend near Payson, Arizona. Lots of “dog haired thickets” of Ponderosa Pine trees in this area.

Google’s “Auto-Awesomed” version of a shot of me helping my wife with a mark-and-recapture protocol last night. I’m positioned over a subnest of Aphaenogaster (Novomessor) cockerelli — a pseudo-seed harvester ant that is common in our Arizona desert.

The Fortress in Würzburg. We stayed in the hostel just below it, looking up at it across a hill of grapes. Franconia has a lot of white wine.

Sometimes a bio-inspired engineer like me has to do some actual field biology. Tonight, we were lucky to find the army ants relatively quickly. Tomorrow, we head for the Aphaenogaster nests.
