what I saw today

This afternoon I looked up and saw the biggest flock of migrating geese I have ever seen. The flock was so large, they were flying in a set of nested Vs. And I immediately thought to myself, "It's a flying cladogram." And then I thought to myself, "Wow, am I a dork or what?"

I wasn't quick enough to catch a photo, which I regret deeply as I could then have subjected generations of students to said photo in lectures about systematics.

first day of the rest of my life

Misha and I were married on a perfect late summer evening last month.

Uluru, Red Centre. Panasonic LX2.

We went to Australia for our honeymoon.

Now we are getting back to "real life." It is looking pretty damn good so far. Perhaps I will elaborate and share more photos in a future post, but for now, all I have to say is that I am very, very happy.
