Thesis Defense is Done!

If you’ve been following me, you’re aware I’ve been working on a master’s degree. This week I took a huge step towards moving on to the next phase of life. I had my thesis seminar, followed by the defense of my thesis. My committee chose to sign off on my work, so I’m that much closer to graduating. I do have some edits that need to be made to the thesis document itself, so I have about a month of work left to do. After that, I should be increasing my trip frequency and gear use, which should increase the frequency of my posts.

Wildlife Update: Gulf Coast Toad

I want to try to have a series of wildlife photo posts, and here’s my first official post in that series.

I captured these photos a few weeks ago. Every year in May and June, I get toads in the front. I think they really like my front gardens, where I use a lot of native pine straw as mulch and the soil is good and loose for them to search for prey.
