Good news, everyone!*
Scientific American has launched an ambitious new blog network, and somehow I have ended up part of it. As of 8:00 am EST this morning I am running a shiny new blog:
Compound Eye will be more explicitly photographic in focus (ha! pun intended) than the present blog and will discuss photo technique, feature images from across the sciences, and offer my half-baked thoughts on all manner of issues in science photography.
I’ve been sitting on this news for weeks. Unable to tell anyone owing to a press embargo, I’ve been so excited I just about thought I’d explode. Fortunately I’ve made it through to the launch date intact.
What does the change mean for Myrmecos?
Some of the photographic topics, including Thrifty Thursdays, will move to Scientific American, but after the dust settles Myrmecos should continue uninterrupted. Slightly tilted more towards Myrmecology, but otherwise I’d like to keep Myrmecos exactly as it’s been.

Twitter hashtag for the launch is #sciamblogs.
I hope to see you over there!
