    Well…at least you’re not turning them into farmers? Liz is not appropriately dressed for farming. Get those legs covered by some jeans! Those exposed legs are cuts waiting to happen!!! 😁

    That headlamp is awesome! She could probably land an aircraft with that thing.

    stwriley, I was thinking the same thing. Why, I might nearly be able to see with a light like that! ;)
    Pity I can’t see the brand, I do need a new one after my old one literally fell apart.

    Daniel Ellsberg, “Pentagon Papers” whistleblower dies at 92.

    BTW everything the Nixon administration tried to do to Ellsberg and other whistleblowers is now legal. And the Democrat apologists are fine with Obama and Biden keeping it that way.

    So she is the designated mosquito-bait so the rest of you don’t get bit?

    I would use expendable orphans for that task.
    Because I am the bigger monster.

    I love pictures of young folks doing nerdy things.  It gives this old fart hope for the future. 8-)

    Speaking of nerds – the original site for the Stonehenge menhirs was in Wales. There are probably other old stone circle sites up there.
    If you are looking for old stone circle sites it would be straightforward to combine it with looking for spiders!

    The temperature here has reached + 25° C and my body will not adapt, so I am too lethargic to look for any organisms, no matter how small and slow. I do not want to think of how hot it is in Minnesota right now.

    Way to go, sending young students to do the hot and sticky job of looking for arthropods… but it would be more “on brand” to send underpaid messicans to do it (laughs like Monty Burns).

    That was your take home from this? Telling her to cover up? Regardless of your excuse for …telling her to cover up.

    I think she’s rocking the look. It’s perfect attire for nerds.

    No one is going to mention the background? It takes a good guy with a post hole digger to stop a bad guy with a post hole digger.

    …And that is why my closets are full of post hole diggers of various makes. I always keep a small post hole digger under my pillow.

    And the words of the day are Auger and Awl.

    The expectations are that they be used in a meaningful sentence suck as:
    ‘A post hole digger is sometimes called an Auger.’

    @ ^ rietpluim : Hay! Wheat not?

    Perhaps for the kids or for the GOAT of goats kids?

    To barley with someone or just milk and have a cow man?

    Also for the owls – Barn Owls specifically..
