I cannot express how much I love this comedy photography competition…personal favourites include the snowy owl (duh), the prairie dog contemplating a blade of grass, and the bear going for a jog: http://www.comedywildlifephoto.com/gallery/2016_finalists.php

  1. Good links.i enjoyed seeing the comedic photos again and several of the articles (even the sad one). Obama has been my boss for the past 8 years. Most people don’t know all the wonderful things he has done for civil rights. Sigh. He kept so many promises to small groups that no one ever noticed (like native Americans) or wanted to ignore (LGBTQ community). So I enjoyed the article about his photographer. Good mix of science and general interest!
