I look at any and everything. Tonight will be water dipped from a bird bath (great rotifers) and gunk from a gutter. With luck it also may clear up tonight.

Hey City Kid--anybody who quotes "Indiscipline" is my kind of astronomer! The bulk of my observing music is King Crimson, Eno, Fripp & a lot of Kraut Rock. I was thinking, this is a dangerous place.

I remember "Hunting with a Microscope". Got it with my 1st microscope when I was in 7th grade (I'm 61 now). I have been thinking about getting a copy.

Attached are the main micros I've got, plus some hand-held & various other magnifiers.

I collected mud & water from the edge of a pond. The sample is plentiful with cyclops (a species of copepods). Trying to do some videos of them swimming about; so far not overly successful.
