Brushing the Line

[chuck] in Tikon, forest inventory

This man did a fantastic job brushing the line during the inventory work at Tikon. I say this for two reasons. First, many of the transects went through dense stands of pyant kyein (Calamus nambariensis Becc.; shown above) with tons of spines, and opening the space was a bit prickly, to say the least. Second, he came to work both days in shorts. And was always smiley and cheerful. [NOTE: I am ready to go back to this marvelous place].
