1. You may have noticed I've only posted a couple items- both Thrifty Thursdays- since the blog launch earlier in the month. The slowness has reason.
Thrifty Thursdays feature photographs taken with equipment costing less than $500. This week's Thrifty Thursday is the first to share images taken by a photographer other than myself.
Consider the following pair of similar images: One was taken with a Canon 50D dSLR through a 100mm f/2.8 macro lens, costing slightly over $2000 for both lens and camera.

Welcome to Compound Eye, a Scientific American photography blog! The blog is new, but the blogger is not. My name is Alex Wild. I am an entomologist and nature photographer based in Champaign-Urbana, Illinois, and I have been writing about insects, science, and photography at Myrmecos Blog since 2007.
