First Soil

As you all know, nature can be fascinating, more specific, biology. Soil for me was the most fascinating and I was curious, what does soil look like up close? The soil is my first sample during a vacation. For some reason, it looked like soil was nothing on a Foldscope, although it looked like it…

Tardigrada

For those seeking Tardigrade for observation. I find a tree with lichen (obviously not protected). I collected lichen from the bark of linden Tilia sp. Tardigrades. In the moss I watched them much less. It’s best to start by observing any “lumps”. This is where they usually hide. They move relatively slowly and like to…
