Trip to the neighborhood canyon to poke some moss that had been reinvigorated by the rain.

I’m actually a botanist by training, and I get into identifying the plants in all the new places I go (which often involves iNaturalist to some extent). In fact, since there aren’t many botany grad students in my department I’ve accepted my role as the TA for the botany classes, and I’m really loving it. I like photosynthesizing things! They good.

Please enjoy the various cactus pictures I took with my cell phone on my trip to Tucson. (I’m definitely coming back with my DSLR when the saguaros are blooming.)
