Australia is a perfect place to find examples of adaptive radiation. Find yourself a kangaroo or a wombat or a koala or any other marsupial… and there you go, adaptive radiation.
Alas, at this time of year, in the areas near my home, I don’t see many marsupials. Many of them nocturnal, which is one issue. The other issue is that I’m not out at dusk and dawn in winter, when you also have a good chance of seeing a kangaroo.
So I’ve been keeping my eye out, but haven’t seen any yet. I haven’t been riding all that much either. Work is beyond ridiculous in hours and stress – which has really impacted my energy levels and health. If it doesn’t ease up soon, I won’t last past Christmas. So I just haven’t had the energy to ride. You know things are bad when I can’t summon forth the energy to pedal even a bit.
So here are some pics from some recent rides while out looking for kangaroos. No adaptive radiation, but we covered a bit more of the electromagnetic spectrum and did some radial structure that seems to be what most people have captured for radiation this month.
