The Island

Post by beetleman »

In my terrarium, I have a small pond area with some fish, plants and a small branch. this is a part of the stick that sticks out of the water like an island. The moss started to grow on it and you can also see some jelly fungus. What I did not expect to see are springtails living on the island. You can see them in the first picture, field of view in the first picture is 1.25". Second picture is a closer shot, springtails are close to center top.

Well-done. I thought I recognized the springtails in the first shot, but wasn't positive till you showed the closeup view.
