Even though I walked through my field site many times, I had never seen this pond. Aerial photos expose beautiful places that you may not find while traipsing about the field. As field scientists, we learn our field sites so well, but an aerial view gives an entirely new perspective.',

This is a 1 micrometer-thin section through the gills of a larval Arapaima gigas. At home in the Amazon, this giant fish is an obligate air breather—an adaptation to seasonal hypoxia. Its larvae, however, hatch as water breathers. This picture is part of a study on the modifications of the gills and swim bladder throughout their development from water to air breathing.',
