Spring is here!

Published May 4, 2013 by Dreamreflector

Hi yah to all my blogging friends! It’s been a long long time since my last post. I could tell you again that I have been very very busy and leave it at that, but I thought I’d tell you something about my life instead. If you don’t want to hear this just hop right down to the pictures and enjoy, but otherwise, here’s a quick recap of what I’ve been up to lately C:

First of I want to say that studying has taken quite some time, but it has been very rewarding and I have enjoyed it hole-heartedly. I’ve learned so much and so far my enthusiasm towards Biology has not faded. This semester is nearly at its end already, and it feels weird to think that I’ve been a university student for a year now, and will no longer be a freshman in Autumn when the next semester starts.

The University choir has also had its work cut out for me. We have worked on a rather challenging Rock/Pop song program, had tree concerts and just a few weeks ago we recorded the songs to be made into an album. However there are still some small things to be done in the next few weeks with that.

And finally something I’m really exited about. I’ve finally started to get back to good old film photography! I have a nice camera, and the university has a really cool dark room. I’ve only gotten a few finished shots, but I am going to share some with you too once I get some more done. The process is a lot slower than the digital one, which also contributes to me not having much time to get digital shots.

I took these about a week ago, when I was just snooping around the corners of the city I hadn’t been to before. This kind of adventuring is really fun I think. You just never know what you find!


I found this skull in a forest near the lake Pyhäjärvi. It was rather big too, so I suspected it was a seagull, perhaps Larus argentatus. However as I did some simple comparing based on the Internet, I found that the beak is not curved enough at the tip to belong to L . argentinus. So the jury is still out on this one. If you have an idea, please let me know in the comments! C:


Nothing special to say about this one. I just like the peacefulness and simplicity of it. And the shy bokeh too C:


And finally this little fellow, a beautiful Zootoca vivipara, aka the common lizard C: He’s the first I’ve seen this year!

Butterfly to the people

Published April 27, 2012 by Dreamreflector

I saw this year’s first butterfly today! I was so happy. Don’t you just love butterflies? I know I do. And that’s why I decided to do a post with a few pictures of butterflies, taken by me of course C: Enjoy!

I think butterflies are a great example of how nature can create amazing beautiful things, just like that C: Just look at that colour

This guy had his eye on me ;D

Beautiful. Looking at these instantly cheers me up.

And a design of timeless dots. And black of course.

A more complicated pattern.

There you go, a few beautiful butterflies. Hope they flew right to your heart ^^
