Today I went for a short walk through the Konavle field, a beautiful place some 20 km south from Dubrovnik. There are a few ponds just a couple hundred meters from my house, so I figured I might as well get some water samples to check under the microscope when I get home. Turns out, I didn't even need the microscope - I got a few beautiful mayfly nymphs right away.

Microscopy ensues!
For a long time I yearned for a microscope. Oh, how cruel the fate was never to provide me with one! I was sad and angry, until I realized I had one right on the shelf in the house. So I repaired it and started using it. How cool is that! The best way to re...

Bibliotheca Natura
There's a new section of the blog as of today, called Bibliotheca Natura, where I'm going to write about the biology and ecology of Dubrovnik area.

"Nerds don't have to advertise their status. We know. Being a nerd is a byproduct of losing yourself in what you do, often at the expense of friends, family and hygiene. Until or unless you've paid your dues, you haven't earned the right—or reason—to call yourself a nerd. Being a nerd isn't graceful or glorious. It's a life born out of obsessive dedication to a craft, discipline or collecting some stupid shit that only you care about." #geek #manifesto

So currently I’m working on the back side, and then I’ll have to decide whether the sleeves are gonna be short or long. Depending on how many rings are left after the basics, I might add more length to it to make it cover the thighs, and I might even make a hood. We’ll see.
