My 15 minutes of Internet fame

I know, I know, you have been eagerly waiting for an update on my PhD plans. But first, I have to tell you that one of my bat photos appeared recently on my favorite web site, Cute Overload. This is one I took last summer while working down in the Caribbean. I guess the combination of a cute fuzzy animal butt ("tock" in CO lingo) plus the whole concept of a bag full of bats was enough to get selected. You can see more about bags of bats here and here.

And for my PhD destination, the winner is... Tennessee! I was very impressed with the faculty and other grad students when I visited there recently. I was lucky enough to get accepted there, one of the top schools in ecology and evolutionary biology. So I'll be moving to Knoxville this summer, and starting to study bat migration. But first, I have to finish that pesky master's thesis...
