Thank you for the updates on preparations. I have Rufous and Anna hummingbirds here and the Rufous are pretty feisty - I can't imagine holding one. Good for you, Sarah.

Thank you for the update, Evan. I was thinking of you when watching a new video by David Scott of Orchids and Fynbos YouTube channel. He filmed up at Darling Wildflower Reserve and one of the plants he caught was Geissorhiza aspera. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X1NVnFGkAV8&t=2s I look forward to your next lab note. Happy Hunting! Valerie

Hi Evan, Thank you so much for the update on the expedition. I am sorry to hear about the puncture, but all's well that ends well, and I am sure you will be able to get those Karoo populations sorted out down the road. The mimicry theory is fascinating and I am really looking forward to learning more in your next update. With best wishes, Valerie

Thank you for sending the link to this documentary. It is very useful to me to get a backgrounding in the ecology of the home of the Drosophyllum lusitanicum. With best wishes, Valerie Melanson
