A mid-study nap

Here is my tired studypartner. I’m studying for the entrance exams to study biology in university and my beloved studypartner decided that my biology dictionary is the best pillow ever. 😀
Or maybe she’s trying to tell me that I study too hard and need to spend some time petting her 🙂 Anyway, she doesn’t look like she’s gonna move so I’ll have to make do with something else to read.

Little guys at the work place

I’ve been working at a local farm this summer and there’s been a lot of little bugs and other animals around. Here’s some pictures I’ve taken with my phone:

First time out after the winter

Today was a lovely day, sun was shining and it was warm, so I decided it was time to take Tintti out. She’s a typical indoor-cat so she doesn’t go out that much, and she’s pretty timid when she’s outside and I have to stay with her so she won’t accidentally run under a car or something, especially  because we live so near downtown.

You can never be too careful, just sneaking around 🙂

And a little snack, grass.

Spider exhibit

We went to a spider exhibit today with my sister and niece. Although a part of me felt bad for those guys, being locked in a box and having humans staring them all day, the biologist in me took this as an opportunity to learn about spiders and see the kinds of spiders that we don’t have here in Finland. It was a great experience and Siiri also had a lot of fun. Here are some pictures:

A hairy one but absolutely one of my favorites.

Near the glass..

This one was really trying to climb to the roof perhaps, but (s)he kept on falling a little once in a while..

känny 101

A shy one, keeping it’s back to us.

känny 103 känny 107

This one was unfortunate enough to fall from its climb while we were watching. Hope it wasn’t too embarrassing 🙂

känny 109

This was a small one, compared to some of the others, but still cute.
