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.

This is a photo from Simon Garnier’s lab at NJIT. With Chris Reid and Courtney Rockenbach, they’re trying to rigorously characterize the process of bridge building in army ants (Eciton in particular). They’ve induced them to make bridges up to 12cm in length (that’s about 12 body lengths).
