This week has been windy and dreary, which prevented us from being able to measure carbon fluxes in the field. A good week to sort through some of my photos and share with you some of the amazing birds we saw as we traveled from South America to the Antarctic Peninsula. Seabirds can be formidable in size yet fly gracefully in the skies. Sometimes they fly very close to the ocean surface without touching it. It takes my breath away to see their beautiful maneuvers.
Growing up watching nature documentaries, I find myself now immersed in nature's splendor. As an ecologist I study how ecosystems function. Here I share with you my love of doing research in Antarctica - a place of sheer beauty
