Those of you who believe that Dr. Research exists only as a hapless foil to my mordant wit will be surprised to learn that he is, indeed, a bona fide human bean, albeit not one whose description you'd want to represent us on a space probe looking to make contact with other life forms, if you get my drift. He is, in fact, Chris Bonney, a mighty fine shutterbug and raconteur. His shutterbug skills have long been on display on Flickr and other places, but it just now occurred to him to combine them with the stories he tells about the shots. Which he has done, admirably, on his brand new blog. So go look.
