Through the Lens

Getting a leg up on scientific research is a dirty job – but somebody’s gotta do it. In this photo taken in the early 1990s, biology professor Dr. Darryl Felder goes heels over head to snag mud shrimp specimens along the mucky Mississippi Gulf Coast. Felder went to great lengths – and incredible depths – to build a decapod crustacean collection the Smithsonian Institution recently acquired from UL Lafayette.
