I know, I haven't been posting much the last couple of weeks. It's the height of field season. That's going really well. We now have females of the highly endangered swamp metalmark butterfly in the lab laying eggs. So we're having success, but it's keeping me very busy. Plus we're scrambling to prepare a big grant application that's due next week, though it's nowhere near as big as the one Rodger slaved over last spring. A week from tomorrow I leave for Tucson where I will meet up with UrSpo and Someone, and will get to meet Homer.
