|A wasp guards her nest under a leaf in Ecuador. When you are expecting strange tropical species at every turn, it is comforting to see a scene so reminiscent of home. - Brigette Zacharczenko|
|Eleven at night on the 12th of September, 2009, I found myself walking alone on a cloudless night in a warm, humid, tropical forest. What seemed to be just another ordinary moment quickly turn to one of great elation! At first sight of your green eyes, yellow skin, and wrinkly face my heart began to flutter. Oh, Centurio senex, the moment we shared was brief but the thought of your musky odor and extraordinary neck skin flaps still bring a smile to my face today. - Laura Cisneros|
|This is a very old northern white cedar (Thuja occidentalis) on the shores of Lake Champlain in Vermont. This species holds the record for the oldest trees in eastern North America and can live over 1000 years. While the age of this specimen isn't known, it was already a very old tree in the late 1800s. - James Mickley|
