Butterflies, Linneaus, SWAMP


The FLMNH has a butterfly rain forest. I took these pictures all by myself - no one helped me.



These are my coworkers Patty and Randy. I don't know the names of their little shoulder friends. No butterflies landed on me.


Any biologists out there? You will think this book is cool. If I were still teaching, I'd show my kids these pictures every time I introduced binomial nomenclature. You know what I'm talking about - you silly Homo sapiens.



Then I got to go on a special tour of the THE SWAMP at the University of Florida. It's all about who you know - thanks Lindsey and Brian. It was totally cool and I really enjoyed spending time with Lindsey and her family.

OK so I must admit that I didn't know what the SWAMP was before this trip but maybe you don't know who Linneaus is - so chillax!

Linnaeus? As in Carl Linnaeus? The Father of Taxonomy? The person responsible for naming, ranking and classifying organisms? Everyone knows who he is Katy, just like everyone knows what The Swamp is! tee hee

I miss you!!! Thanks for coming to Gainesville, reminiscing and making me laugh!!

So glad you said Hi. Looks like you are doing well and are busy. I haven't ran into you for a while. Maybe I'll see you at Cafe Rio soon. Take Care!

I'll admit, I don't really know what the crap you're saying!
