We have one entry left after this, so I beseech readers to step up and send one or two photos and a caption.
When I saw the pictures from my erstwhile colleague Bruce Cochrane, I decided I had to contribute too. I’m also a geneticist at Miami University, but I work on mammals and thus am from a different academic lineage than yours. We live in a log house on 18 acres of scruffy second-growth forest in SW Ohio, which has an understory that consists mostly of invasive species. My spare covid-time has been spent cutting down autumn olive and Amur honeysuckle, so below is a picture of me ready to go out into the woods with my trusty battery-powered saw and stump poison. The second picture is me with two of our three cats—I am holding the lovely Poppy, while her daughter Jasmine looks on.
