Campus

Seeing red

by SCM |

Sudden, brief, strange, near: Observing a dragonfly before the Ricard Observatory, through the lens of photographer Adam Hays of our IT department. The image won the inaugural photo contest (open to students, faculty, and staff) held by SCU Gone Wild—a citizen science project connecting the University community with the natural world on and off campus. Also spotted of late: salamanders, a peregrine falcon, flocks of cedar waxwings, and killdeers.
