Photos of readers

Don’t forget to send in your personal photos (MAXIMUM TWO), preferably doing something characteristic or interesting, and with a short caption. You may include a cat in your photo, but don’t send it separately! Howie Neufeld is a professor of biology at Appalachian State University; I met him when I gave a talk there a […]

Reader A. C. Harper sent two photos, one as a Roman: A reflection on my recent trip to York. Or you can use the cos-play version from the same trip, taken in the Roman Baths remains under The Roman Baths pub; nothing better than a pint of super-cooled Guinness on a hot day.

Reader Bonnie sent some photos in which she re-enacts a famous expedition (I’ve added two links). Click the picture to see Bonnie: I visited Ft. Clatsop in Oregon recently – would recommend a visit if you are ever up that way. As something of a Lewis and Clark enthusiast, I took the opportunity for some ‘Yonder-ing’ […]

Today we have a cowboy wannabee in the form of reader Gary Miranda, who sent two photos. His captions are indented: One of the things on my bucket list had long been to learn how to gallop on a horse. I figured if movie actors could do it, so could I (though they probably weren’t […]

Today we have photos of two readers together: evolutionary biologist Joan Strassman and her daughter, sociologist Anna Mueller—the same Anna who helped me tend the Botany Pond ducks for several years and has a mother mallard hen named after her.  Joan’s caption is brief: Here are two photos of me. One is from field work […]

Send in your photos (two max, please) and if Ceiling Cat is willing and the creeks don’t rise, you will be featured. N.b.: I have a dearth of women sending in photos, and don’t know whether that reflects a dearth of women readers, greater reluctance of women to send in photos, or what. But if […]

Cate Plys (right below) sent a photo from Chicago, and what distresses me is that I didn’t know about that taco truck! Cate’s caption: Well, why not–I can’t send any good wildlife photos because my phone takes lousy pictures and I no longer have a real camera. So, here’s a photo of myself and my […]
