    by Lou Jost Andreas Kay, well-known macro photographer residing in Ecuador, has just died after having a golf-ball-sized tumor removed from his brain in Quito a few weeks ago. He was in great pain. He re-discovered and photographed the toad Atelopus coynei, once thought to be extinct. Andreas had discovered many new species of plants, and several are named after him, including the orchids Lepanthopsis kayii and Lepanthes kayii. He helped the EcoMinga Foundation set up its Dracula Reserve. He is best known for his magnificent collection of 29,048 macro insect and plant photos from Andean Ecuador, published on his “Ecuador Megadiverso” Flickr site. This vast collection of breathtaking photos surely contains many more species new to science. Andreas lived a simple life devoted to nature photography. His brain tumor was not discovered until it was very large, and his health declined rapidly after that. Knowing he would die soon, he gave me his hard drives, and I will send some of his photos to Jerry periodically.

    That white cotton ball looking one called Mildred, I saw in Thailand. There must have been five or six hundred of them all grouped together walking up the trunk of a tree. At first I thought it was some kind of fungus and then I got up close to notice the whole thing was moving. It was the weirdest thing I've ever seen.
