Some shots taken during a photography workshop at the US Botanic Garden. It was a great opportunity to get in early before the public and set up a tripod. These are also my first foray into editing with #VSCOfilm.

Just finished H is for Hawk — incredible book. Will return to it often, I'm sure.

"Books about nature, like the category “animal,” sometimes suffer from a sin of omission: in both cases, people belong inside them but are often left out. Books about grief run the opposite risk; too much of the person can be left in, too much of the world omitted. Macdonald, who is writing both kinds of book at once, makes neither mistake. She is intimate and moving on the anguish that carried her into the company of hawks, but the world of her book is like the world we really live in, crowded with humans and human ideas, and she turns on it all the triple perspicacity of a poet, a naturalist, and a historian."

New photo post of Sapphie at home: 
Our dog Sapphie loves relaxing on the couch, which makes her an easy subject.

The best part of the National Zoo closes permanently today.

"Invertebrates are 97 percent of all described animal species on Earth. They are 80 percent of all multicellular species, plants and animals combined. The absence of this major group from any educational facility is problematic."
Why did the National Zoo ditch an exhibit of 97 percent of animals on earth with just one week's notice?

John Timmer of the NAS human spaceflight recommendations:

"Overall, the report (like several others before it) makes a tremendous amount of sense. But sense and political reality really have had little to do with each other."
And, if you want partners, get there via the Moon.
