    Oh good, it comes with a handy key ring loop.

    John:

    I’ve returned to this picture several times and my breath is still taken away. What a lead-in to the Internationial Year of Biological Diversity (all your Friday critters).

    John Cheever’s title for his novella, “Oh, What a Paradise It Seemed,” haunts me as I think about the future of life on this planet, the big, the small, animals, plants, known and unknown, Archaea, bacteria, fungi and protists.

    Thanks again for these lovely portraits of our relatives.
