April 2012 Desktop Calendar

Below is an image of Physcomitrium hookerii from the collecting trip I made to Missouri and Kansas a couple of weeks back. I have some additional photos from my travels to post up. Maybe April will have a little more space for blog posting.

If you are interested in downloading this desktop calendar follow the instructions below.

1 - Single click on the image to open it up in a new window. (If you use the image directly from the blog post you will loose a lot of resolution.)

2 - Right-click (or ctrl-click) on the image, and chose the option that says, "Set as Desktop Background" or "Use as Desktop Picture". The wording may vary.

3 - If the image does not fit your desktop neatly, you may have to adjust the image (Mac: System Preferences > Desktop > Screen Saver > Desktop; Windows: Control Panel > Display > Desktop) and choose "Fill screen" as the display mode of your background image.

Any issues or suggestions please let me know. These calendars are an experiment in-progress.


  1. Fun idea! Thanks for taking the time to make this out of your photo.

  2. This idea came about when the website that I used to get my desktop calendars from stopped putting them out. I really like having a calendar on my computer desktop so I decided to give them a try. I figured since I was making them for myself I would post them in case anyone else was interested in using them too. I'm glad to hear that you think it is a fun idea! Cheers.
