Today my biology class went to “Stavsjøen” (Pole/Stick-lake, gah I don’t know) to do some testing of the water and look for critters around the lake in order to study an ecosystem.
Wanna know something cool? In the winter it gets so cold here that this lake freezes and they make an “ice road”. Yes, I’ve driven on it.
My group didn’t have much luck catching anything, but we were able to catch a leech (yes EW) and this “little” guy…
Freaky fact: this guy was going to turn into a dragonfly. Yep, it’s a dragonfly nymph.
We took turns (group-wise) going out in this boat to take tests of the water at different depths. Afterwards we went back to school to look at what we found and write notes for a rapport.
I’m pretty good at my work, huh? The orange is forest, the green is farmer’s fields, the blue is buildings, etc etc….
Ah the exciting life of a student….
