Scientists in the field, we salute you. The things you put yourselves through just ain’t easy.

Your face when the thing happens.

Sometimes, animals are great companions during field work..

… And sometimes, not so much.

Well, sometimes, they’re just curious.

Sometimes, too curious.

and then there are animals who just eat everything. Everything.

Specially the equipment.

and other animals. Dammit, Nature.

And then there’s super-glueing things to things that shouldn’t be glued to.
