February is the shortest month, but there was no shortage of February photos taken as part of the Daily Image From Fermilab, or DIFF. What was the DIFF in February? Lots.

George the safety mascot was revealed to be the officemate of an engineer in the Accelerator Division. Scott Doerr took a walk with his dogs around the lab grounds. Angela Fava spoke about phototubes and scintillators during Saturday Morning Physics. And Tamara Hawke prepared a module for microbonding.

It’s all captured on DIFF, the Daily Image From Fermilab. Check it out at diff.fnal.gov. We encourage you — anyone with a camera or mobile phone — to sign up for a day in 2017 to take a photo. If you like it, we’ll post it.

We’ve also designated #mobilemondays, so if you take a photo on a Monday with a mobile device, include #mobilemonday in the caption when you submit it at diff.fnal.gov.

And if you want to show your friends and family our DIFFs, head over to 50.fnal.gov and click on Daily Image From Fermilab in the left menu. You’ll see a very nice presentation of all the DIFF photos taken so far.
