Since I'm sure you're all curious, I thought I would share some of my observations and photos* from the trip I took to Arizona this summer. I'm still amazing by how much wildlife I was able to experience in only one week. I went with my adviser and a bevy of graduate students, professors, researchers, and volunteers. We are planning another trip for next August, and I'm hoping to spend even more time out there. I'm intrigued by the landscape to the point of considering focusing my thesis research on moths of that area.
The following are a few teaser photos of the landscape. Stories of the wonderful creatures I encountered are soon to follow, along with some of the adventures undertaken here at my lab so far.
