Just a few Galapagos photographs pulled from my Instagram feed. Click or mouse-over to read captions, and email me if you have any burning questions. I only had a few seconds to take many of these shots because the tour I was on was the regular “forced march” variety, and you’re required to stay in sight of the guide. Would love to go back for a more leisurely visit, ideally with a guide who has impaired mobility and walks slowly. I’ll be posting more pictures in the coming weeks, so follow me on Instagram if you’re a Galapagos fan.[alpine-phototile-for-instagram id=721 user=”colin_purrington” src=”user_tag” tag=”galapagos” imgl=”instagram” style=”cascade” col=”3″ size=”s” num=”30″ align=”center” max=”100″]
Some photographs I took during a visit to La Selva Research Station in 2008. Old, but recently discovered they hadn’t transferred to my site when I bailed on Flickr.
I was stuck inside a small room for most of stay (I was consulting for Organization for Tropical Studies), unfortunately, so not as many pics as I’d like. The full album (approximately 50 images) is below. I wish OTS would hire me again.
This little spider is a golden orb weaver (Nephila clavipes), I think:

Just mouse-over the thumbnails below to see title, or click to see larger.
For science fans near Philadelphia, here are photographs from a recent visit to the Delaware County Institute of Science, based in Media, Pennsylvania. First my favorite (a grumpy dried frog), then small thumbnails of the rest. Mouse-over a photo to see a brief description of what it is (but try to guess, first), or click it to launch larger version with titles. If you want to see any of the photographs even larger, or want to read the gruesome details, visit my original gallery.
If you are in Media to eat (and you should … see http://www.mediarestaurants.com for listing) or in court because you’re a bad person and got caught (it’s the County seat), you can visit DCIS on a Monday, Thursday, or Saturday morning (9am – 12pm). They also feature monthly talks: the next one is November 9th and focuses on the Mason-Dixon line (oh, yes, there’s a story there).
