It always amazes me how ants can carry such large objects. I wish I could do that.
I suspect the secret to the ants' ability is the biomechanics of the exoskeleton, Dr. K.
My appearance really hasn't changed all that much in the last few years. I was invited to give a talk recently and was asked to provide an image that the organizers could use in their promotional pieces. When I went to retrieve the image I use most often for such purposes, I realized the image was taken in 2009 (in New Mexico, actually!). It's still a good representation, and it's still my favorite.
I like the seedling/going to seed sequence; very clever.
