Every year, the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology invites its students, faculty, and staff to share the photos they took in the past year while working in the field, walking through the forest, or generally enjoying the natural world. Of the nearly 50 images submitted to this year’s contest, LSA has selected some of the most stunning to showcase. These photos include the iridescence of peacock feathers in LSA’s Museum of Zoology, autumn leaves (and a grizzly bear!) in Alaska, the psychedelic colors of an insect in Arizona, and a migratory visitor to Alcatraz. The photo contest honors the memory of the department’s longtime “photographer at large,” David Bay, a staff member who passed away in 2009.
