Photograph of Colin Purrington. Holding a framed Ornithoptera priamus.

I use this blog primarily to share nature photographs but most people come here for my tips on scientific posters. My photography site is at https://colinpurrington.smugmug.com if you’d care to browse — prints available of all.

In case you’re interested, I’m a graduate of Reed College (BA) and Brown University (PhD), then did post-doctoral research at Washington University and the University of Chicago. I taught evolutionary biology at Swarthmore College from 1997 to 2011.

You can also find me on Twitter. And sometimes on Instagram.

If my posts have brought you happiness in some way and you’d like to buy me a virtual coffee, you can do that via my ko-fi page. Or surprise me with a book from my Amazon wishlist.
