My data collection is complete and I'm now on to analysis and writing. I've really enjoyed conducting research up here in Kensington and I have learned a great deal. I've often heard that you learn more from the mistakes you make than the things you get right, so I'd like to share some of my mistakes and frustrations with you. In case you didn't read the lengthy proposal I posted earlier, the cliff notes are that I'm quantifying the efficiency of pollinators that visit purple coneflower. This means that I've spent a lot of time staring at flowers and waiting for a bee to come visit.
