The Musings are pretty text intensive at the moment with all the taxonomy and systematics posts flying around, so I thought it was time to bust out a few more pretty pictures of this summer’s fieldwork. I’ll stick up some more stuff from China tomorrow, but today I’ll deal with Mexico.
As I have mentioned before, one of the great things about being a scientist is the opportunity to travel and see new places and people. While I have shown off a few of my field photos, I have plenty more and hell, they are at least vaguely interesting / nice to look at so here they are. My time in Mexico included a pseudo holiday so there was the opportunity to take off days away and get to see some of the countryside including here ‘sand’ dunes of gypsum, living freshwater stromatolites, tame cichlids, and classic desert sunsets.
