My first drop of "fresh" pond water this spring!

Post by billporter1456 »

I was excited to go to my local pond and scoop up the first sample of pond water since my last trip there months ago. Lots of life in this first drop! Many diatoms, cyanobacteria, a big rotifer, spirogyra, and other life forms presented themselves to my eager eye. I just had to make a short video of what I saw in this very first drop!
