Wild (and not so wild) animals in the field

Posted by Jessica Ball

I don’t want to miss out on the domesticated or wild fun, so here are my contributions to the recent animal memes.

New and creepy insects are always turning up on field trips:

Fortunately, there are birds to take care of them – when they’re not trying to steal your food.

Of course, why worry about birds when there are four-legged critters to watch out for?

Some are cute…

Some you wouldn’t want to hug, but they could still qualify as cute…

Some definitely aren’t cute or cuddly…

And some are are just so utterly comical that they require long breaks before any meaningful field work can get done.
