Photo Synthesis: Call for Bloggers


As you may know, Photo Synthesis is a rotating blog, featuring the work of a different photoblogger each month.

The powers that be here at ScienceBlogs tell me they are still considering candidates for the coming month and for following months. So. If you have a favorite science photographer who blogs, or blogger who photographs, send your suggestion to Or, just post a comment below.

Don’t be shy about recommending yourself, either, if you fit the high profile of a Photo Synthesis blogger. Generally, aside from the obvious bit about photography, we here at Photo Synthesis tend to be internationally celebrated, devilishly attractive, charming at parties, proficient at PCR, skilled in fighting street crime, and good with cats.

    One sort of expects it in soap ads and such, but in a so-called science blog, to see chimpanzees referred to as monkeys is disheartening.

    Unlike monkeys, chimpanzees have no tails. Just like us, chimpanzees are APES.

    I have no problem calling chimps monkeys. Or humans monkeys, for that matter.

    Monkeys become paraphyletic if we remove apes from the group. And trust me. No one wants paraphyly.

    I nominate entomologist Ted MacRae of Beetles in the Bush ( is moving up to DSLR equipment soon so he can relate his experiences with the new equipment, besides giving the straight poop on the bugs he blogs about.

    Would you consider a fly fishing/entomology photographer? If so, please contact this gentleman:

    He takes some incredible bug pics.
