Walked another five hours today - still no sign of the large aggregations I need to complete my research. Sometimes if you have any tales I'd love to hear them today!

Good morning everyone! Today we are going to talk about bee braaaaaiiinnnnsss a bit, once I'm back from my daily walk. Below is a Mexican honeywasp queen's brain, viewed as a cross section - bees look very similar!

My UnEssay projects for this semester have started to be submitted and my students are blowing my mind. I cannot say this enough: GIVE YOUR STUDENTS SPACE TO CREATE AND THEY WILL AMAZE YOU.

I leave for the field in 3 days and feel like a total mess! What if my methods don’t work? What if I don’t catch the right species? What if everything breaks?!? Anyone else experience pre-field expedition panic & jitters?

Here's some pretty cacti I saw today as partial compensation

Like my pallida bee species that I am studying for my thesis - very pale!

Alright y'all. I meant to chat bee brains today since that is what you all voted on BUT I got too tired after finally finishing up my lab work. Time in the field is not always restful- trying to maximize every moment I have! Hopefully after my morning walk tomorrow, I can chat.

This is what happens when you put a Pyrex baking dish in a muffle furnace at 1000 deg C for 24 hours. In case you were wondering.

So excited. Tomorrow I'll be taking my 10,000th observation on somewhere in Texas!

Reminder that “pulling yourself up by your bootstraps” was initially a joke about an absurd, impossible thing to do, and that it is not a real thing one can do

Well, it is called the 'pallid' bee!

After walking about five miles round trip today I found one aggregation, just starting up, all of the small male bee (but I am looking for the large C pallida male morph which can get much much bigger)! Tomorrow, I'll try a different area to see what I find.

Holes in the ground belong to spiders, ants, bees, snakes, rodents, wasps, beetles, lizards, ant lions... The list goes on. Buzzes are omnipresent - honey bees humming everywhere, flies, many wasps + bees, etc. Even when you hear the right buzz, it is often moving away from you!

Good questions! Yes, the desert is FULL of life. We think of it as a dead landscape, but desert landscapes can be some of the most diverse on Earth. Bee diversity in Arizona alone is greater than the entire East Coast.

No need to be appalled! There are so many things we can learn about in our short lifetimes. I am glad to get to share what I'm learning with you!

Excited to be tweeting as next week but now it's come around it seems a lot of days to fill.... Let me know if there is anything specific you'd like me to cover?!

Here's where I'll be walking today! I'm looking for holes in the ground of the right size, and listening for buzzes of the right pitch... Not easy in the desert!
