One of my favorite times of year in Flickr Commons is March, when the Smithsonian rolls out more wonderful images from the collection of portraits of women scientists. This is their fifth year running, and there are still plenty of photos to share. Check their stream every Friday in March for more treasures, but these are from the first batch this year:
